Herald-Dispatch photo archive – In 1949, Jim Otsuka, a Japanese American Quaker, was fined $100 for refusing to pay his federal income tax due to the military spending of the federal government. He was imprisoned for five months at the Federal Reformatory at Summit, Ky. (near Ashland). This photo is of supporters holding signs outside the jail. He also refused to serve in the military and was sent to federal prison during World War II. Otsuka died in 1984.

We are scanning the negatives and photos and running some of the photos in the newspaper.

These photos were from a box of 4x5 negatives. They are most likely from the late 1940s to early 1950s.

Browse through the gallery. If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), e-mail online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
