The rebuilding of postwar Japan and southern Korea by Allied occupation forces is described

here in a series of thirty-six monthly reports. The reports offer detailed information on

industrial reparations; conversion of production frommilitary to consumer goods; land reform;

restructuring of educational, public health, and welfare programs; and the establishment of a

liberal, democratic political system. The reports on SCAP (Supreme Commander for the Allied

Powers) activities in Korea cover the administration of civil affairs and reconstructive efforts

under the military occupation government and later the South Korean Interim Government.

This digital archive is based on eight microfilm rolls.
