"Minnesota's Secret Language School" Photo Display

On view June 15–September 2, 2019

Developed by the Twin Cities Japanese American Citizen League, visitors will see more than a dozen panels featuring photographs that share the history of the Military Intelligence Service Language School (MISLS), known as America's secret weapon in the war against Japan during WWII.

Photos show students at the language school when it was located at Camp Savage and later at Fort Snelling, as well as graduates during deployment in the Pacific.

Nearly 6,000 Japanese American servicemen attended the MISLS, most of whom did so instead of being incarcerated in War Relocation Authority camps during World War II.
