  • "Estelle Ishigo was one of the few Caucasians to be interned along with 110,000 Japanese Americans in 1942. This biographical portrait traces Estelle's early life in San Francisco and Los Angeles and her marriage to Japanese American Arthur Ishigo in 1929. In the aftermath of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, Arthur was discharged from his janitorial job at Paramount Studios and Estelle was fired from her teaching position at a local school. Under orders of the U.S. Western Defense Command, Japanese Americans were placed under protective arrest and were later moved to the Pomona Race Track where they were forced to live in decrepit horse stalls. In August 1942, Estelle, refusing to abandon her husband of 13 years, was relocated with him to Heart Mountain, Wyoming, there to be interned in a square-mile enclosure with 12,658 other internees. Despite the harsh privations of the arid camp, the inmates managed to set up a school, a newspaper, a theatre troupe and an orchestra. Estelle horded paper in order to record her impressions and make sketches of the conditions. After their release, Estelle and Arthur were given meager compensation for their dire treatment. Arthur died of cancer at age 55 in 1957. Estelle continued to draw and paint and was eventually asked to contribute her work to an exhibition of camp survivors. In 1983, four former internees found Estelle Ishigo living in poverty in a basement apartment."
