The War Relocation Authority (WRA) collected information on individual evacuees on WRA Form 26. The WRA used the data to support the management of individuals and the relocation centers, in general. The series also served as a locater index to the separate series of individual evacuee case files created and maintained by the WRA. After conversion of the punch cards to an electronic form by the Bancroft Library of the University of California in Berkeley in the 1960"s, the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, used a copy of the data file to support distribution of reparations to former evacuees.
