A report written by William F. Benson, the inspecting officer, detailing how evacuees were moved from Marysville Assembly Center to the Tule Lake Relocation Center in June of 1942. The report details what freight was used, what baggage the evacuees were allowed to take, government property that was issued to the evacuees such as blankets, the times and items that evacuees were fed, a detailed description of the processing process, and the staff that accompanied the evacuees during the relocation. An instruction sheet created by the manager at Marysville Assembly Center, N. L. Bican, is included at the end.
