CSU Dominguez Hills Takano Family Papers

A letter from Fumio Fred Takano to Interviewing Committee, War Relocation Authority, Gila River Relocation Project. It requests a reconsideration of his answers to the loyalty questions, 27 and 28. He claims that his answers to both questions were recorded in the negative and desires to change them in the affirmative. Listing his family's background information, he asserts that he and his family have hardly involved in the Japanese community and had "a definite stand of loyalty to the Untied States." He attaches "History on my answers to questions 27 and 28" in which he explains about how his answer to 27 was altered to the negative even though his answer was initially "Yes." He claims that his negative answers did not reflect his expression of disloyalty and requests for a change to the affirmative for both questions. The letter includes the note which refers to references from his employer at the camp. Those references are found in items: csudh_tak_0093 and csudh_tak_0094.
