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. This page concludes the decision to intern Dr. Koyama as an enemy alien since his involvement with organizations like Sokoku Kai and the Japanese Chamber of Commerce may lead to him show disloyalty to the United States. The letter was signed by Carl C. Donaugh, United States Attorney, William G. Everson, Chairman, Alfred E. Clark, and Leslie M. Scott, Member of the Board.

February 12, 1942
