First Asian Stanford Professor defends Japanese immigration to California

Ichihashi, Yamato

San Francisco

Japanese Association of America



Japanese Immigration / Its Status in California. First Printing. Original wrappers. 49pp.

Stanford’s first Asian Professor denounces the “unscrupulous…Japanese haters”, motivated by “money-getting and vote-getting”. Only by securing the right to citizenship, he argued, would “justice and fairness…be accorded to Japanese."

Ichihashi came to the US from Japan as a teenager, graduated from Stanford, received his Ph.D. from Harvard, then returned to Palo Alto  to teach Economics and International Relations until he and his family were interned during World War II. His recently-published wartime writings are said to be “the only comprehensive first person account” of life in the “relocation” camps.
