K. Patrick and Lily A. Okura Collection: Registry

The UCLA Asian American Studies Center wishes to express appreciation to the late K. Patrick and Lily A. Okura and their families for this donation of rare papers, records, and primary documents of significant research and historic value. Gratitude is also extended to Professor Emeritus Don T. Nakanishi whose research vision for Asian American Studies secured the gifting of Pat and Lily Okura's records to UCLA.

The K. Patrick and Lily A. Okura Collection Registry is made possible through the support and generosity of the Okura Mental Health Leadership Foundation.
