Dr. Keizaburo Koyama Family Collection

Photocopy of a declassified report detailing the reasoning behind the recommendation that Dr. Keizaburo Koyama be interned as an alien enemy. The first page notes those individuals that wrote on his behalf, but since their letters were not in affidavit form, they failed to comply with the Department's regulations for the conduct of alien hearings. As such, they were submitted only as character references and were found to not be helpful to the board and their investigation.

February 12, 1942
