The Gordon W. Prange Collection is the most comprehensive archive in the world of Japanese print publications issued during the early years of the Occupation of Japan, 1945-1949.  These books, magazines, newspapers, posters, maps and more were subjected to censorship by the Allied Forces. They bear censorship markings ranging from check-in and examination dates to deletions, suppression and other changes. The Collection was named for the late Gordon W. Prange, who was instrumental in bringing the materials to the University of Maryland.

Materials from the Gordon W. Prange Collection are accessible in the Maryland Room, the reading room for Special Collections and University Archives at the University of Maryland.  Researchers should visit the Maryland Room, located on the 1st floor of Hornbake Library North, to view requested items.
