Term paper by Alice Muraoka for period VII Social Problems class taught by Mr. Harry Bentley Wells, a teacher at Manzanar High School. Alice describes her desire to become a secretary and to work in an office. She was able to finish typing and shorthand coursework but the evacuation (as she calls it) cut short the course which she most enjoyed: learning to use office equipment, which was unavailable at Manzanar to continue her studies. Alice continues, describing her hope to soon find a job as a typist in one of the offices at Manzanar. Eventually she would like to be a private secretary for a businessman or profession. Transcription is found in item: ecm_wells_9004. See this object in the California State Universities Japanese American Digitization project site: ecm_wells_0004
