This list of Prisoner of War Camps, Italian Service Unit Camps, and Prisoner of War Hospitals is based on weekly reports located on NARA microfilm #66-538 (population lists June 1942-June 1946). Additional locations based on newspapers, interviews, and other NARA records (at College Park and Regional Archives).

The POW Camps in Oregon during World War II included:

•Adair (Camp Henry R.), Corvallis, Benton and Linn Counties, OR (base camp)
•Umatilla Ordnance Depot, Umatilla County, OR (base camp)
White (Camp), near Medford, Jackson County, OR (base camp)

Enemy alien internment camps:
•Portland, Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas Counties, OR (assembly center) (German, Japanese)

Cemeteries:
•Camp White, OR (2 German burials transferred to Vancouver Barracks Post Cemetery, WA)

There were 3 base camps, 11 branch camps, 1 internment location, and 1 cemetery in OR. More details in my latest book titled Prisoner of War Camps Across America. It is available in Kindle format on Amazon and in .epub and .mobi formats at the GenTracer Shopping Cart.
