On Generational Differences in JABA’s Early Years

Transcripts available in the following languages:

It’s interesting, but a lot of the older lawyers were not really interested in starting a separate, you know, Japanese American Bar Association. They thought it would be much more important for us to be involved with the LA County Bar or the other bar associations. And I think you might notice in sort of the early membership roles, that most of the lawyers, most of the people who were really active, were younger. The older people [lawyers], they might have joined, but they weren’t really at all active, the old sort of established lawyers, they never [sic: rarely] came.
