Información adicional As a laboratory technician for the all-important Atomic Research Committee, she will be returning to Hiroshima, the scene of her school days as a student at the Christian Woman's College in 1939 and 1940, for a two year stay.

There the Atomic Research Committee is laying the groundwork for a 20-year program for studying the effect of the atom bomb, not only on the present generation, but on the children born to the bomb victims.

Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tokujiro Sadahiro, Mickey was born in Colorado, but can easily be considered a Californian as she went through school at Banning High in Wilmington.

With the advent of the war, she moved to Salt Lake City. There she enlisted in the WACs. During the war she was stationed first at Camp Crowder in Missouri and later at Camp Kilmer, New Jersey

It was while she was in the WACs that she became interested in the work of a laboratory technician. After leaving the service, she worked in a hospital in Layton, Utah, until she received her appointment to go to Japan.(Excerpted from The Rafu Shimpo, 1948)
