Student clubs

At West Coast universities before World War II, Japanese clubs were formed for students from Japan and Nisei (second-generation Japanese Americans) who were reaching college age. Because it was understood that people of Japanese ancestry would not be accepted at white fraternities, the solution was to form segregated clubs.
