As part of the Hawai'i Memory Project, Manōa campus chancellor Peter Englert allocated $237,600 toward the project. The COH's Warren Nishimoto and Michiko Kodama-Nishimoto conducted the videotaped oral history interviews, while KCC's Ivan Sinclair converted and edited the interview files for online presentation. The interviews took place between January 2005 and January 2007; each person did at least two interview sessions, with one person doing seven. Each interview was professionally transcribed. The interview subjects were allowed to view both the raw video and the transcript and to suggest edits. While the initial plans called for thirty interviews, twenty-one were eventually completed.\n </p>\n <p>\n  The twenty-one interviews are categorized by unit: the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/1399th_Engineer_Construction_Battalion/\" title=\"1399th Engineer Construction Battalion\">\n   1399th Engineer Construction Battalion\n  </a>\n  (Elbert Arakawa, Kenneth Hagino, Toshiyuki Nakasone, and Richard Okamoto); the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Varsity_Victory_Volunteers/\" title=\"Varsity Victory Volunteers\">\n   Varsity Victory Volunteers\n  </a>\n  (\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Yoshiaki_Fujitani/\" title=\"Yoshiaki Fujitani\">\n   Yoshiaki Fujitani\n  </a>\n  and Herbert Isonaga); the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/100th_Infantry_Battalion/\" title=\"100th Infantry Battalion\">\n   100th Infantry Battalion\n  </a>\n  (Stanley Akita, Takashi Kitaoka, and Ray Nosaka); the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/442nd_Regimental_Combat_Team/\" title=\"442nd Regimental Combat Team\">\n   442nd Regimental Combat Team\n  </a>\n  (Herbert Isonaga, Hichiro Matsumoto, Katsugo Miho, Ronald Oba, and Whitey Yamamoto); and the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Military_Intelligence_Service/\" title=\"Military Intelligence Service\">\n   Military Intelligence Service\n  </a>\n  (Fujitani, Dick Hamada, Takejiro Higa, Chito Isonaga, and Norman Kikuta). To provide some gender balance, there were also five interviews with Nisei women under the category \"A Different View\" (Chito Isonaga, Sue Isonaga, Yuki Kitaoka, Janet Matsumoto, and Amy Yamamoto). Though focused on the World War II period, the interviews cover the entire life of the person.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Each oral history is divided into ten to twenty sections by topic, with each section featured on a page that includes an edited transcript and photographs, along with, in some cases, a short video clip and links to related articles, websites, or bibliographies. A shorter view of each life is also presented, with each section reduced to about one hundred words and one photograph. A link to the full transcript is also provided. The video clips are generally one to two minutes long and play alongside a transcript.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Though all the interview subjects selected served in the armed forces (or are the wives of men who did)—making the broad title of the website somewhat misleading—the wartime incarceration is broached in some of the interviews, most notably those of Fujitani and Miho, whose\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Issei/\" title=\"Issei\">\n   Issei\n  </a>\n  fathers were interned, and Whitey Yamamoto, who recalls an impactful visit to the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Rohwer/\" title=\"Rohwer\">\n   Rohwer\n  </a>\n  , Arkansas, concentration camp while in basic training.\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Brian_Niiya/\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n    Brian Niiya\n   </a>\n   , Densho\n  </b>\n </div>\n <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n  Niiya, Brian\n </div>\n <div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n  <h2>\n   <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n    For More Information\n   </span>\n  </h2>\n  <div class=\"section_content\">\n   <p>\n    <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">\n     The Hawai'i Nisei Story: Americans of Japanese Ancestry During WWII.\n    </a>\n   </p>\n   <p>\n    Gusukuma, Chance. \"'The Hawai'I Nisei Story': UH to Launch Hawai'I AJA World War II Web Site This Fall.\"\n    <i>\n     Hawaii Herald\n    </i>\n    , June 3, 2005, A-1.\n   </p>\n   <!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCached time: 20240618045542\nCache expiry: 86400\nDynamic content: false\nComplications: []\nCPU time usage: 0.010 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.013 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 219/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 4625/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 1499/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 4/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nUnstrip recursion depth: 0/20\nUnstrip post‐expand size: 0/5000000 bytes\nExtLoops count: 0\n-->\n   <!--\nTransclusion expansion time report (%,ms,calls,template)\n100.00%    6.877      1 -total\n 35.49%    2.441      1 Template:RGDatabox-Core\n 21.39%    1.471      1 Template:Databox-Websites\n 20.90%    1.437      1 Template:Published\n 20.34%    1.399      1 Template:AuthorByline\n-->\n   <!-- Saved in parser cache with key encycmw:pcache:idhash:3674-0!canonical and timestamp 20240618045542 and revision id 36373\n -->\n  </div>\n </div>\n</div>\n<div class=\"toplink\">\n <a href=\"#top\">\n  <i class=\"icon-chevron-up\">\n  </i>\n  Top\n </a>\n</div>",
