CSU Dominguez Hills Tsugitada Kanamori Collection

This item contains the more in-depth answers to questions on the affidavit that Tsugitada Kanamori submitted. In these extended answers to questions about Kanamori's repatriation to Japan and his refusal to pledge allegiance to the United States, he discusses his fear of violence and desire to keep his family together which resulted in his answering of "no" to the the Loyalty Questionnaire in Poston. He also discusses his marriage to Grace Kazuko Miyamoto in the Tule Lake camp in March 1944 and briefly explains that his father was first brought to the Santa Fe Department of Justice Camp, while the rest of his family was first brought to Poston. Eventually they were all moved to the Tule Lake incarceration camp. Kanamori wanted to apply for "relocation" but was coerced by his family and fearful of violence outside of the camp, thus resulting in him remaining in camp with the rest of his family.
