Michael Basket is one of the 2011 recipients of a Terasaki research travel grant, which was established by the Paul I. and Hisako Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies to support scholars who wish to come to UCLA to use the Gordon W. Prange Collection microform set housed at the Richard C. Rudolph East Asian Library.

In summer 2009 the UCLA Library acquired the Gordon W. Prange Magazine (62,977 fiches) and Newspaper (3,826 reels) Collections, which respectively reproduce 13,783 magazines and 18,047 newspapers and newsletters published in Japan during the Allied occupation from 1945 to 1949. During these years all publications were submitted for pre- or post-publication approval or censorship to the occupation’s censors in the Civil Censorship Detachment. The microforms show the complete files—the original publications, often with censor markings, comments, and revisions—which give insight into the censorship process as well as the content of the publication. The originals are housed at the University of Maryland Libraries at College Park.
