Description
Full title:A successfully relocated Nisei family is portrayed in this picture of the Harry Taketa family. As father plays a game of checkers with his son Grayson, age 9, his daughter Deanna, age 6, and mother, Miyeko, look on. Harry was practically the first relocatee in Omaha. Harry formerly lived in San Jose, California, where he owned an ice-cream business and worked as a salesman. He went to work in Omaha for the Gland-O-Lac Company, as a firm which is engaged in the production of poultry and canine medicines. He has worked for this company ever since and has been advanced in position and has received three raises. His position now is as a laboratory technician. After working about a month, Harry rented a house, and the rest of the family joined him. Harry's employers cannot say enough fine things about him. They state that he is hard-working, very dependable, is willing to take responsibility, and has initiative. Harry settled down and became part of the community; his children started to school and made their own friends. Harry relocated from the Gila River Center on June 16, 1943; and since that time many of his friends have joined him. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Omaha, Nebraska.
