Biography

Japanese-American visitor to Japan turned propagandist broadcaster of English to allied forces in WW II. Declared an enemy alien, she was unable to return home to California when war broke out. She took a job to support herself with the Japanese and was actually one of 13 women who worked as "Tokyo Rose."

Post-war, she was arrested in Japan on 8/26/1948 and brought to the U.S. for trial. She was found guilty of "speaking into a microphone under the name Tokyo Rose." She was sentenced to ten years prison, separated from her family, husband and child, given a $10,000 fine and loss of her American citizenship. Released from prison in 1966, she coined her family in operating a small notions store in the Japanese section of Chicago. In 1977, she was given a full pardon.
