San Jose State Schmidt (Willard E.) Papers

Memo regarding resignation. Stating that the Center has returned to a state of "normalcy" including the return of approximately 2,000 ex-employees to work, it declares the dissolution of the Co-ordinating Committee, in order to make way for the election by all incarcerees ("the entire colonists' vote") of a new responsible body. The memo is signed by eight Committee members, including the adviser. See this object in the California State Universities Japanese American Digitization project site: sjs_sch_0074
