Index to Japanese American Detainees on Angel Island or Sharp Park

AIISF is researching Japanese immigrants from Hawaii and the continental U.S. as well as those from Germany and Italy who were briefly detained on Angel Island during World War II by the U.S. Department of Justice. This research is being funded by the Japanese American Confinement Sites fund of the National Park Service, and we wish to express our appreciation to them for supporting this project.
 
In addition to the War Relocation Authority (WRA) camps such as Tule Lake, Manzanar and Topaz, located across the western half of the United States, which housed approximately 120,000 Japanese Americans including American born U.S. citizens and Japanese immigrants, an additional 7,000 Japanese immigrants and Japanese Latin Americans were arrested by the Department of Justice and detained in camps such as Lordsburg and Santa Fe, New Mexico, Missoula, Montana, and Crystal City, Texas. A number of them, including approximately 600 from Hawaii and close to 90 from the West Coast, spent a few weeks at Angel Island before being sent to the locations listed above. For most of them, wartime saw them be sent from camp to camp, separated from their loved ones who were either at home in Hawaii or relocated to WRA camps. Our records so far also show approximately 20 German immigrants and 20 Italian immigrants who spent some time on Angel Island.
 
The list details those who we believe spent some time on Angel Island during World War II. Use the "filter" box to search for specific names or countries of origin. To browse the entire list, click on the down arrow next to the Display box and select All. If you know any of these people, or their descendants, who might be able to help tell their stories about their time on Angel Island and elsewhere, please let us know how to reach them or forward our email address to them (info@aiisf.org). We may also be able to help the families find their relatives' wartime files from Department of Justice records now at NARA. Please also contact us if you know of others who may have been detained on Angel Island during World War II but are not on this list.
