Description
Full title:Dr. Sam Kuramoto, osteopath, formerly had a medical practice in Los Angeles, and came directly to Des Moines, Iowa, where he enrolled at the Still College of Osteopathy, instead of going to a Relocation Center. In November, 1944, he opened medical offices in Webster City, a town of 7,000 about 80 miles from Des Moines. I've been busy from the very first day, Dr. Kuramoto said, and I'm having to work night and day. Most of Dr. Kuramoto's patients are Caucasian, and when the WRA photographer visited him March 17, 1945, he had to wait a long time to take his picture--so many patients were waiting to see Dr. Kuramoto. His office is located at 713 Wilson Avenue, Webster City, Iowa. Dr. Kuramoto and his wife, Ayeko, live at 717 First Street. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Webster City, Iowa.
