FRANCES CUMPSTON

This is an Oral History of Frances Cumpston (77), Non-Nikkei, widowed and native of Florin .

She has good relationships with people and especially is a good neighbor and friend to Japanese Americans, before, during and after WW II.

She was one of the very few present at the train depot when all Japanese Americans departed for the Relocation Centers. Parts of the text are more of a candid discussion between the people present & interviewer, interviewee, Percy Nakashima and his wife, Aileen. Frances mentions the positive influence of husband, Bill, their parents, relatives and the local Methodist Church . There is a brief discussion of pro and con about Redress.
