Rosewell, New Mexico

Nisei male. Born January 11, 1934, in Clovis, New Mexico, where father worked for the Santa Fe Railroad. On January 19, 1942, officials rounded up all of the Japanese Americans in Clovis and removed them from the town without warning in the middle of the night in response to an angry mob of townspeople who were threatening the Japanese Americans. They were taken to an unused former CCC camp, Old Raton Ranch, where they were held under guard until the end of 1942. Mr. Ebihara and his family were then transferred to the Topaz concentration camp, Utah, and then resettled in Cleveland, Ohio. Remained in Ohio and established a successful optometry practice.
