On this day in 1947… (July 18)

This post is a part of continuing series on the Censored Newspaper Articles (CNAs).

On July 18, 1947, multiple newspapers attempted to publish an article about a special distribution of clothing for repatriates in Tokyo.  The articles were suppressed, however, and it is unclear whether this news was ever made public.

The digital images below are Civil Censorship Detachment (CCD) documents related to the news of the distribution of clothing.  Several newspapers submitted galley proofs and hand-written manuscripts (see the thumbnail below of the Jiji Shimpo galley proof – Prange Call Number 47-loc-0381a”), all of which are housed in the Prange Collection.  The digital images of the galley proofs and manuscripts may be used onsite in the Prange Collection.  For more information, contact prangebunko[at]umd.edu.
