Summary
After being interned with his parents at the Minikoda Internment Camp in Idaho, Frank Masao Shigemura was released to attend Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota, with the help of the newly formed National Japanese American Student Relocation Council, headed by John W. Nason. Although Shigemura described his year at Carleton as the best of his life, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was killed in battle in France on October 20, 1944. When Carleton published a memorial "Gold Star" booklet which honored the Carleton men who had been killed in the war, Mr. and Mrs. Shigemura responded with the first of many donations to the college. From their correspondence, Carleton President Laurence M. Gould developed a friendship with the Shigemuras, and as their contributions continued, helped establish the Frank Shigemura Scholarship at Carleton. The alumni felt Frank's loyalty should be made public and asked George Grimm, a columnist, to write about it. Grimm wrote a series of articles on the Shigemuras's generosity; the articles were collected and reprinted elsewhere
