TOKUTARO NISHIMURA SLOCUM poses in front of Japanese American Citizens League headquarters in Los Angeles. From the Lim Report: “At Manzanar, rumors that ‘Slocum is an FBI agent’ cropped up as early as May, 1942, immediately following his arrival at the Center. These rumors were frequently traced to Slocum himself, who privately let it be known among enough people for such circulation that he was in constant correspondence with agents of the FBI in Los Angeles as well as prominent officials in veterans groups to which he belonged.” More on government informants here.
