    "description": "The Gentaro Takahashi Collection consists of photos, documents and ephemera from the time of Gentaro Takahashi’s arrival in the United States in 1907 to the 1970’s.  The collection includes family photos in the U.S. and Japan, photos of Takahashi's travels in the U.S. including Duluth, Minnesota and Yellowstone National Park, correspondence and academic work from Boston University, Harvard University and the University of Detroit.  The material details Gentaro Takahashi’s efforts to get him and his family released from Minidoka Camp, resettle in Michigan, and reclaim “contraband” and personal effects taken at the time of internment.  The collection includes correspondence with Senators and the Japanese American Citizens League related to the passing of a personal law allowing Takahashi to remain in the United States.",

    "bioghist": "Gentaro Takahashi came to the United States in 1907 at the age of 19 to attend school.  He received degrees at Boston University (BA 1921) and the University of Detroit (MA 1922), as well as doing coursework at Harvard University.  He returned to Japan for six months in 1927 at the time of his father’s death before returning to the U.S.  He married and had six children, all U.S. citizens.  His last child was born in Minidoka Relocation Camp where Takahashi and his family were held from 1942-1944. Prior to his internment, Takahashi ran his own real estate company in Seattle.  Takahashi found a sponsor in Michigan and was able to move his family from Minidoka in late 1944, eventually returning to Seattle.  Takahashi was able to successfully lobby for a private law allowing him to remain in the United States, and worked with the Japanese American Citizens League to expand the legislation to others.",
