Full title:A native of Sacramento, California, Michiko Date was graduated from Sacramento High School and attended Sacramento Junior College for one term. She was working in Sacramento as a clerk-secretary for the State Franchise Department prior to evacuation in May, 1942, with other members of her family to the Walerga Assembly Center. The following June she went from the assembly center to the Tule Lake Relocation Center and in September, 1943, from Tule Lake to the Jerome Relocation Center, where she was secretary to the assistant project director. In February, 1944, she relocated to New York, where her sister Yuriko Lillian was already living, and soon was employed as a stenographer by the Board of Home Missions of the Congregational and Christian Churches. In this photograph she is taking dictation from Dr. Ernest M. Halliday, general secretary of the Board's Church Extension Division. Michiko lives with her sister, who came to New York from Tule Lake in September, 1943, and two other evacuees, Miss Chitose Aihara from Rohwer and Miss Chiyo Sato from Tule Lake and Granada, in a cozy three-room apartment in uptown New York, a few steps from famous Riverside Drive. The parents of the Date girls, Mr. and Mrs. Kunijiro Date, are still living at Jerome.<lb /> New York, New York.
