Ōshū Nippō Masthead

The Ōshū Nippōwas established in 1909 after Toyoji Abe acquired Oregon’s oldest Japanese-language newspaper, Oregon Shinpō. Iwao Oyama took over the operation in 1917. The publication was suspended in 1942 when president Oyama was incarcerated at the Santa Fe Department of Justice Camp during WWII. Oyama resumed the publication under the new title Oregon Nippō in 1945.
