Archival history

Material was previously housed at Lynn Deutscher Kobayashi home. Lynn received the boxes from Michael Murakami. Though it is unclear why he transferred them to her, it is probably because he was in the process of downsizing at the time and was unable to give them to the Library then as we were not accepting any donations due to covid. Lynn Deutcher Kobayashi had the material brought to the Library in 2023.

Immediate source of acquisition or transfer

Gift of Susan Hidaka, 2023.

Content and structure area

Scope and content

Material is comprised mostly of textual records from the founding of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre, and some celebrating the success of the Momiji Seniors Centre. Some personal records from Susan Hidaka’s life are also included.

Appraisal, destruction and scheduling


No future accruals are expected.

System of arrangement

Material was not arranged in any discernible order besides some documents being held together with paperclips. Those held together have been kept together in the same file. Files were not arranged further into series due to the small amount of material. Titles, unless given in square brackets, have come from the original file or record.
