Term paper by Wataru Okamoto for Social Problems class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Wataru recounts that before the war and forced evacuation he wanted to be a fisherman or grocery store owner. However, once at Manzanar, he decided on becoming a gym instructor in both baseball and basketball. He reiterates his previous desire to be a fisherman, hoping after the war is over to relocate to Seattle or Mexico. Wataru also hopes to see some of his friends that have left for other incarceration camps again and visit other areas during furlough. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9012.
