UC Santa Barbara Frank Chin Papers

A tribute to Michi Weglyn written by Toshiko Kawamoto in which she talks about her husband Dave Kawamoto who was one of the 63 men at Heart Mountain incarceration camp to refuse induction into the military. According to Toshiko Kawamoto her husband had been taken to the Heart Mountain incarceration camp a few weeks shy of graduating with a degree in business administration from CSU San Jose. Many years later Michi Weglyn wrote to CSU San Jose President Robert Caret and convinced him to award Dave Kawamoto his degree posthumously.
