San Jose State Schmidt (Willard E.) Papers

Letter from three of his children, Tatsuo, Manabu, and Osamu Sakamoto, requests the release of their father, Kihichi Sakamoto, from the Army Stockade, for the sake of their mother's "health and mind" stating that she has been ill since their stay in Heart Mountain the previous year and has suffered a relapse upon her husband's imprisonment in the stockade; the letter states that, according to her doctor, a lack of kindness and peace of mind regarding this request for release could prove lethal to her.
