Azusa Pacific University

Azusa Pacific University honorary degrees awarded

Almost 70 years late, 24 former students of Japanese ancestry people were recipients on an honorary degree at Azusa Pacific University on Saturday, December 18, 2010.  They were former students  attending  Pacific Bible College as it was called during World War II.   These former students  were forced to abandon their studies and  relocated into internment camps  in the remote areas of the interior states.   

Among the recipients, was the Reverend Paul M. Nagano, age 90, formerly from Poston camp 3 (block 327).
