President Ernest Hatch Wilkins
Dear President Wilkins:
President Sieg has given me your letter of March 19 to answer as I am advisor to the Japanese students on campus.
As this is our Spring vacation, I have not been able to contact the four students recommended by Harry Yamaguchi but shall attempt to do so within the next day or two.
I have just returned from a conference with academic, Y.M.C.A., and army officials in San Francisco and find that all three groups agreed upon the desireability of continuing the education of our American born Japanese with a view to assisting the assimilation process after the war.
May I thank you for your generosity and cooperation in helping us find a place for some of our best students.
Robert W. O’Brien
Assistant to the Dean
