University denies admitting Japanese American students

April 14, 1942 — As Japanese Americans were being evacuated from the West Coast, the University said no Japanese student evacuees had been admitted at the University.

After receiving a letter from University of Washington Prof. Robert O’Brien, the Deans’ Conference discussed the matter, but said it had reached no definitive conclusion.

An article that ran April 12 alleged that the University was one of the nine inland institutions allowing Japanese students to seek refuge.

University President Alexander Ruthven said, “The newspaper report that the University of Michigan has agreed with West Coast institutions to accept students of Japanese blood from the evacuated areas is incorrect. It is the policy of the University to discourage such students from seeking admission here.”
