Group Journey

This internee was sent in the Seventh Transfer Group of twenty-three Issei men aboard the U.S. Army transport ship the Ernest Hinds for incarceration in U.S. Army and Justice Department camps on the Mainland. The internees were sent together from camp to camp, with some paroled to War Relocation Authority camps to reunite with family and others transferred for repatriation to Japan. 

Also in this transfer group were two Issei women: a nun, Kanzen Ito, and a physician, Ishiko Mori. The women were kept apart from the male internees and had different internment sequences from them.
