[From Our Pictorial Archives] Ann Arbor 1943: Not all of the Japanese Americans brought to Ann Arbor during World War II were here to help instruct U.S. military personnel in the Japanese language. Several hundred other young Japanese-American men and women were recruited from internment camps in western states to work during the war in dormitories, cafeterias and hospitals here. They had been assembled in "security" roundups in West Coast communities following Pearl Harbor. Francis C. Shiel, retired manager of Service Enterprises for the University, was one of those who visited the camps on the recruiting mission. Shiel said the group scattered quickly after the war but some remained in Ann Arbor. Although the government's treatment of the West Coast Nisei has been widely criticized, the group above appears happy in its campus environment.
