ribbon cutting ceremony for the Military Intelligence Service Historic Learning Center in the Presidio. The refurbished building finally gives the National Japanese American Historical Society it's own building. It's on the site of the US Army's secret language school, set up in 1941 & staffed with bilingual Japanese American soldiers. The school relocated to Minnesota the next year, when the government evacuated all Americans of Japanese ancestry from the West Coast.
