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).
