    In this letter from Virginia Barnett, wife of Seattle Quaker and lawyer Arthur Barnett, Virginia writes to Homer Morris in order to explain some particular information regarding Gordon Hirabayashi's history. She writes, "I worked very closely with Gordie while he was a student and I was still on the Y.W. staff at the University, and I feel I can give you some specific details regarding what his interests and abilities are." She describes his background as a sociology student, an employee of the YMCA and his experience with the Summer Service Project. She finishes her letter by saying, "I feel his real talent is in the field of group leadership or in some position of functional relationship with groups or just plain people. He is an interpreter of a way of life- and he does such a good job of it his light should shine out for as many as possible to see.". less
