Tule Lake Defense Committee History

In late 1944 and early 1945, over 5,000 native-born United States citizens of Japanese ancestry interned at Tule Lake Segregation Center renounced their U.S. citizenship. As a result, these renunciants were classified "alien enemies" under the provisions of the Alien Enemy Act. On July 14, 1945, President Truman issued Public Proclamation No. 2655 authorizing their removal to Japan. San Francisco attorney, Wayne M. Collins, began advising the renunciants of their legal rights during August 1945. For those desiring to remain in the United States, the first step was an appeal by letter to the Attorney General, withdrawing their renunciation on the grounds that it had been the direct result of governmental duress, private coercion, and undue influence.
After V-J Day the renunciants formed the Tule Lake Defense Committee to facilitate and finance what they foresaw as an extended legal process. Thirty-two committeemen and a five-person Executive Committee were selected from their ranks. The first Executive Committee (Chairman Harry Uchida, Yasuo Honda, Yoshiro Kaku, Fumio Masuoka, and George Tsuetaki) negotiated a verbal agreement with Collins to represent their legal interests and began raising money to finance the endeavor with pledges from members.
On November 13, 1945, Collins filed two mass class equity suits (Abo v. Clark, No. 25294 and Furuya v. Clark,No. 25295) and two mass class habeas corpus proceedings (Abo v. Williams, No. 25296 and Furuya v. Williams,No. 25297) in the U.S. District Court at San Francisco. Representing approximately 1,000 renunciants, these cases sought to determine nationality, prevent removal to Japan, end internment, and cancel renunciation. The lawsuits immediately stayed the removal of the internees to Japan and forced “mitigation hearings.” These hearings, conducted in Tule Lake, California, Bismarck, North Dakota, and Sante Fe, New Mexico, resulted in the release and relocation of most of those in the enemy alien camps. Those remaining in enemy alien camps were eventually paroled into Collins' custody before the cancellation of their removal orders and their outright release. Collins and the Committee represented 4,754 persons in mass civil and equity suits. Of those, approximately 1,000 had their renunciations cancelled by final judgment, and administrative remedies were agreed upon for the rest.
In addition to the renunciants, Collins and the Committee represented individuals stranded in Japan during the war or deported for renunciation and unable to return to the United States (strandees), and Japanese Peruvians deported to the United States from Peru during the war, who were subsequently being deported from the United States to Japan (Japanese Peruvians).
Throughout the extended litigation, the Tule Lake Defense Committee maintained contact with the parties to the various suits and negotiations, informed them of progress, obtained evidence from and for them, and solicited contributions to defray expenses. They negotiated with Collins and monitored the trust fund created to disperse Committee funds until the disbanding of their Los Angeles office in 1958. The Committee remained a voluntary, unincorporated, nonprofit organization throughout its existence.

Scope and Content

The Wayne M. Collins Papers consist of selected material remaining from his San Francisco legal practice and a small number of personal papers, spanning the years 1918-1974.
The major portion of the collection is devoted to Collins' work as legal representative for the Tule Lake Defense Committee from 1945 to 1960. It includes correspondence, litigation documents for mass civil and equity suits filed for renunciants, individual case files, and financial files for the Committee's trust accounts, which Collins managed. Also included are Collins' case files for the 1944 "stockade cases," in which he represented evacuees imprisoned for violations of Tule Lake's special project regulations prohibiting Japanese Nationalistic activities, and American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) renunciant case files given to Collins in 1958 by Ernest Besig.
The remainder of Collins' legal Papers contain selected files representing his civil liberties and general law practice from 1947 to 1963. These include case files and other materials dealing with East Indian deportation, the Levering Act/Loyalty Oath controversy, estates of Collins' friends, Astaroth Haskell and Bruce Porter, and the Berkeley Free Speech Movement of 1964. Collins' office files include extensive correspondence with the Society for Helping Boys and the Swedenborgian Churches of San Francisco, Tokyo, and South Africa.
Finally, a small number of personal papers, including family correspondence, genealogical, and other biographical materials and ephemera are also included.

Arrangement

Divided into nine sub-series: Authorizations and Reports, Correspondence, Mass Civil and Equity Litigation Documents, Individual Case Files, American Civil Liberties Union Files, Miscellaneous, Related Material, and Tule Lake Renunciant Trust.
Correspondence is further divided into General Office and Litigation. General Office correspondence consists of letters, memos, and form letters between the offices of Wayne M. Collins and the Tule Lake Defense Committee, from either office to the renunciants, and miscellaneous correspondence between members of the Tule Lake Defense Committee, including Tetsujiro (Tex) Nakamura, Harry Uchida, Larry Seiichi Kataoka and others. Litigation correspondence consists of letters to and from Collins regarding litigation on behalf of the renunciants.

Scope and Content Note

Mass Civil and Equity Litigation Documents contain copies of legal documents filed on behalf of renunciants. While fairly extensive, it is by no means exhaustive; for a complete set of litigation records, contact The National Archives Western Division.
Individual Case Files are further divided into Renunciants, Strandees, Japanese Peruvians, and Stockade Cases, and may contain correspondence, forms, and litigation records. The American Civil Liberties Union Files were given to Collins by Ernest Besig and include correspondence and case files, arranged alphabetically, as well as miscellaneous meeting minutes and other material. Miscellaneous consists of material related to the court cases and mitigation hearings in Bismark, North Dakota, Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Tule Lake, California. Related Material includes public proclamations, congressional acts, and news releases, with other similar material related to the evacuation and resettlement of the Japanese and Japanese Americans. The Tule Lake Renunciant Trust consists of the financial records of the Tule Lake Defense Committee, administered by Wayne M. Collins.

Series 2: Case Files. 1930-1972

Arrangement

Arranged alphabetically by client name.
Divided into four sub-series: East Indian Deportation, Levering Act/Loyalty Oath, Estates, and Free Speech Movement. Related general materials are filed at the beginning of each sub-series.

Scope and Content Note

Consists of a selected representation of Collins' law practice. Individual case files include correspondence, notes, and drafts of legal filings. The general materials relating to the Levering Act/Loyalty Oath are especially rich in illustrating the historical context of this issue, as they focus heavily on events taking place in San Francisco, the first city to try the loyalty oaths in the courts. Estates files include correspondence, notes, and legal documents pertaining to the settlement of personal estates, including Collins' longtime associates, Astaroth V. Haskell and Bruce Porter, among others. Collins represented Mario Savio and seven other University of California, Berkeley students in the Free Speech Movement case of 1964, and followed closely the free speech case of his own son, Wayne Merrill Collins, one year later.
