Local Monterey Historian Tim Thomas on his discovery of a WWII Petition from Monterey Residents Supporting the Return of Japanese Internees. 

Join us as Tim Thomas shares his recent discovery of a long forgotten document signed by John Steinbeck and many other people of significance to the area. The petition was published in a full-page advertisement in The Monterey Herald on May 11, 1945, with a headline that read "The Democratic Way of Life for All." Mr. Thomas came across the document when he was going through some file cabinets at the Japanese American Citizens League Hall.
