Directory: Hiroshima Keijin of Southern California, 1963 / Minami Kashu Hiroshima keiji jushoroku: Furoku Nanka Hiroshima Kenjinkai shi

Notes: A directory of members of the Hiroshima Prefecture Society (Kenjinkai) of Southern California along with an introduction about the group. Kenjinkai—prefecture societies—were influential parts of the Japanese American community, and the Hiroshima group was one of the largest. More than 100 businesses advertised in this directory.

The entries are organized by the English last name of the head of household, with the name of spouses in parenthesis, followed by addresses and phone numbers. The information is repeated in Japanese, with the addition of a notation identifying American-born Nisei.
