Photocopy of a declassified report on Keizaburo Koyama's sworn statement to Inspector Clarence J. Wise. The report states Koyama's biographical history and physical measurements. It lists his entry date to the United States as December 31, 1914. He states that he is a member of the Portland Chamber of Commerce and the Japanese Methodist Church, but is not a member of any secret organization. After his statement, he was transferred to the Multnomah County Jail and then transported to Camp Missoula, Montana. Confidential Informant 201 and the reporting agent reviewed all the evidence removed from Koyama's office and found "no apparent significance to this investigation." The report states that on December 9, 1941, John Pittenger of the Portland Police Department found no evidence in their files that Koyama committed any criminal offenses. However, the Motor Vehicle Division noted that on January 9, 1940, Koyama paid a $2 fine for failing to observe a stop sign and that he was arrested on October 14, 1941 for disregarding a signal.
