Description Transcript (typescript, 54 pages) of an interview with Ronald K. Wakabayashi, a Japanese-American living in Utah in 1984. Mr. Wakabayashi (b. 1944) talks about his childhood in East Los Angeles, racism, and the differences among first, second, and third generation Japanese Americans. He recalls his experience with organizing outings for a population of California Isseis, single men who had never married and would never return to Japan. Of particular interest is his description of working with Japanese people who testified about their relocation camp experiences
