to Memphis, and his post-war career; one letter to Dr. Charles E. Smith, 1942, regarding his medical work at Tule Lake camp
and other conditions there; letters to Dr. Michael F. Marmor, November 1996, recalling his internment years; and one letter

George Kambara earned his A.B. at Stanford in 1937 and his M.D. in 1941, but was forced to leave his residency in 1942 and
relocate to the Tule Lake internment camp. He was head of the eye, ear, nose and throat service there until he was accepted
for a residency in Memphis in 1943. He finished his residency at the University of Wisconsin in 1946 and taught there until
1948 when he moved to Los Angeles to set up his practice in ophthalmology.
