Morning Glory, Evening Shadow: Yamato Ichihashi and His Internment Writings, 1942-1945 Hardcover - 1997

by Gordon H. Chang (Editor)


From the publisher

This book presents both a biography of a Stanford University professor, one of the first academics of Asian ancestry in the United States, and, through Ichihashi's wartime writings, the only known comprehensive first-person account of life in U.S. "relocation centers" for persons of Japanese ancestry.

First line

Soon after he returned to his home on the Stanford campus in April 1945, after having been forced to spend three years in federal relocation centers, Yamato Ichihashi informed an old friend who, like himself, was a specialist in international relations, that he hoped "to write a history of the evacuation of Japanese from the West Coast states."

From the rear cover

This book has a dual purpose. The first is to present a biography of Yamato Ichihashi, a Stanford University professor who was one of the first academics of Asian ancestry in the United States. The second purpose is to present, through Ichihashi's wartime writings, the only comprehensive first-person account of internment life by one of the 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry who, in 1942, were sent by the U.S. government to "relocation centers," the euphemism for prison camps.
Arriving in the United States from Japan in 1894, when he was sixteen, Ichihashi attended public school in San Francisco, graduated from Stanford University, and received a doctorate from Harvard University. He began teaching at Stanford in 1913, specializing in Japanese history and government, international relations, and the Japanese American experience. He remained at Stanford until he and his wife, Kei, were forced to leave their campus home for a series of internment camps, where they remained until the closing days of the war.
