Dr. Keizaburo Koyama Family Collection

The envelope is addressed to Dr. Keizaburo Koyama at Camp Livingston from his wife, Teru Koyama, at Minidoka. Postmarked Nov 12, 1942. In red pencil “Dec 14-42” is written on the left side of the envelope. On the back of the envelope is a large white sticker that says "EXAMINED BY/U.S.A. 219." The letter is dated Nov. 10, 1942. Teru writes about William's new job working at the sugar beet farms, and a birthday cake that was mailed to him by "Uncle Chape and Aunt Eva." She writes about the girls joining the Girl Scouts and that the wooden shoes that Kei made for his family may be too small for some of the children.
