Early Editions Of Bainbridge Review Now Online

The Museum contributed to the creation of Kitsap Regional Library’s first special digital collection, Bainbridge Review, 1941-1946. The Bainbridge Review, a weekly newspaper edited and published by Walt and Milly Woodward, has earned national recognition for its coverage of the forced removal of more than 200 Bainbridge Island residents of Japanese descent. The Woodwards editorialized against the removal and devoted space in the newspaper to reports about their lives in the camps.
