Memo, John L. DeWitt to John McCloy
ddr-densho-67-2 (Legacy UID: denshopd-i67-00002)
Memo, John L. DeWitt to John McCloy, regarding mixed marriages and resettlement of Japanese Americans upon release from concentration camps. Includes McCloy's previous memo to DeWitt suggesting reexamination of DeWitt's policy denying return of mixed-marriage couples to the West Coast. Suggests considering requests on the basis of loyalty. In DeWitt's response, he objects to proposed changes, citing that allowing "loyal" Japanese wives to return would open the door for large numbers to return. Also includes a second memo by DeWitt questioning the validity of McCloy's memo, unsure as to whether McCloy actually wrote it.
