With heavy hearts, the staff of UPC say goodbye to our author, series editor, and friend Lane Ryo Hirabayashi. We send our deepest sympathy to the family, friends, colleagues, students, and communities that he loved and who loved him in return. Thanks to Lane’s vision, numerous scholars have found a home for their work—and will continue to find a home—in the George and Sakaye Aratani Nikkei in the Americas Series.

For more information about Lane and his life, please read this wonderful tribute from Brian Niiya at Densho.
