Chiyoko Doris Hoshide, 1911-2010

C. Doris Hoshide, 99, who became a translator for the Army Map Service after she was released from a World War II-era internment camp for Japanese Americans, died of respiratory failure May 12 at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital in Rockville.

Mrs. Hoshide was among more than 120,000 Americans of Japanese descent who were incarcerated in camps during the war, ostensibly because they were considered a threat to national security. In 1942, she was sent to Heart Mountain Relocation Center in north-central Wyoming, where she worked as an elementary school teacher.
