Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This small collection chiefly contains photocopies of documents related to the deportation case of Diamond Kimm, a Korean resident of Los Angeles, whose legal case denying a suspension of deportation after refusing to say whether he was a Communist in the 1950s went to the Supreme Court (Kimm v. Rosenberg, 363 U.S. 405).
Diamond Kimm was born circa 1901 in Long Chun, Northern Pengan Province, Korea, and came to the United States in 1928. He was a student at the University of Southern California and a temporary agent of the United States Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II. In the 1940s-1950s, he published a bilingual newspaper, "Korean Independence" in Los Angeles. Kimm was deported to North Korea after appealing and losing his case before the Supreme Court in 1960 (Kimm v. Rosenberg, 363 U.S. 405).
