The Seiki Miyasato collection is comprised of personal correspondences, WRA documents, a copy of the Portland Orgonian’s “The Wrong Ancestors” article, and a photographic portrait from the personal family collection of Seiki Ronald Miyasato, a Japanese American incarceree who was held at the Santa Anita assembly center and both the Gila River and Minidoka concentration camps. The bulk of the personal letters stem from Seiki’s correspondences with Kim Takehara while the WRA documents depict many of the U.S. Government’s standard processing procedures of the period. Additionally, such records outline Seiki’s selective service deferral and his lengthy pursuit of a relocation to Hawai’I through military transport.
