Abstract / Summary
When Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Issei (first generation immigrants) and their Nisei children were well established in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County. Some raised fruit, vegetables and flowers on undeveloped land that they rented or farmed as sharecroppers. Others formed cooperatives or corporations to sell and distribute produce while still others started small businesses to serve Japanese and other residents in the area.
