ELLENSBURG — Did you know that the U.S. government paid $20,000 to move a cemetery to make way for the Hanford nuclear reservation in 1943?
Or that the federal government published a pamphlet in 1945 to dispel myths about Japanese-Americans such as widespread disloyalty and dishonesty?
That information comes from two of the more than 600,000 federal documents kept at Central Washington University’s Brooks Library. The library adds 10,000 to 20,000 new items every year.
