Description
Full title:Miss Michiko Date (left) came to New York in February, 1944, from the Jerome Relocation Center to join her sister Yuriko Lillian. Both girls were born in Sacramento, California, and in May, 1942, they were evacuated from there with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kunijiro Date, who are still living at Jerome. The Date family first went to the Walerga Assembly Center and then, in June, 1942, to Tule Lake. In September, 1943, Lillian went to New York and her parents and sister went to Jerome. Now Lillian is a dressmaker in a custom dress shop and Michiko is a stenographer in the headquarters of the Board of Home Missions of the Congregational and Christian Churches. Prior to evacuation Michiko was a clerk-secretary in the Sacramento office of the California State Franchise Department and Lillian was a self-employed dressmaker. Both girls are graduates of Sacramento High School. Later Michiko attended Sacramento Junior College and Lillian the McDowell Sewing School in San Francisco. They now share a comfortably furnished apartment (three-room) close to Riverside Drive with two other girls who have resettled in New York: Chiyo Sato, formerly of Sacramento and the Tule Lake and Granada Relocation Centers, who is a finisher in one of New York's exclusive custom dress shops; and Chitose Aihara, formerly of Sunnyvale, Cal., and Rohwer Relocation Center, and now a public health nurse on the staff of New York's Henry Street Visiting Nurse Service. New York, New York.
