Fast's personal letters to his wife, Sept. 1944 and August to December 1945 when he was located in Santa Rose, CA, include
mention of other WRA personnel, his visits to Japanese internment camps, and his work relocating Japanese Americans into towns
and jobs after the war, especially in Northern California and the Central Valley. Many Japanese families are mentioned by
name, along with local reactions, both positive and negative, to their return.
Emory Fast, who earned a degree in political science at Stanford University in 1938, worked for the War Relocation Authority
during World War II.
