Full title:Relocation meant resettlement for Henry Suezaki and family, voluntary evacuees from the Watsonville section of California to Denver. Among the first relocatees arriving in California was the Suezaki family. When Henry found public reception off color in the Watsonville District on arrival from Denver in March of 1945, he continued his journey to San Jose and found temporary housing for the family with the Takeo Shikamuras at Mountain View. It did not take Henry long to find work and housing on the Risotta ranch near San Jose. Henry is working out a share-cropping strawberry deal with the Risotta family. He now has about six acres of berries planted early this spring and ready to go into production in 1946. The family consists of Mr. and Mrs. Suezaki, Albert, 17, Richard, 14, and Mrs. Kono Ito, mother of Mrs. Suezaki. Albert will enter San Jose State College this fall and will transfer to Stanford University for his advanced work after completing his college preparatory work here. The Suezakis are facing the future with confidence.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> San Jose, California.
