Photocopy of a declassified seven point sworn statement from Eva C. Goodenough on behalf of Keizaburo Koyama. On this page, Mrs. Goodenough writes about Dr. Koyama's reputation, stating that it is "above reproach." She contacted several schools and individuals that had dealings with Dr. Koyama and all "expressed their confidence in him." As to his loyalty to the United States. Mrs. Goodenough talked about Dr. Koyama's decision to raise his children as American citizens with no intentions of taking them to Japan. She adds that Dr. Koyama has on several occasions stated that he would never take up arms against the United States. She feels that with Mrs. Koyama's health and the American way the Koyamas have raised their children is sufficient enough reason to reunite the family with Dr. Koyama.
