8. "The Boy who never belonged," Arcadia Weekly, January 5, 2017, article by Susie Ling. 93-year-old Yosh Kuromiya returned to Monrovia for a visit. He lived in Monrovia before World War II and felt he never belonged. He remembers Orange Street-now Colorado Boulevard-used to be so wide. He graduated from Monrovia-Arcadia-Duarte High School (MAD High School) in 1941 then forcefully evacuated in 1942, with other Japanese Americans of Monrovia. His father had a strawberry stand off Route 66, right next to Mr. Uyeda's strawberry farm. Uyeda claimed he was the Strawberry King of Monrovia. The Kuromiya family's stand actually bought strawberries from other farms at the north end of Double Drive-now Santa Anita Avenue and not from the strawberry fields adjacent to their store.

She grew up at 331 West Huntington Drive and attended Monrovia Arcadia Duarte High School (MAD High School). She was of Japanese descent and sent to Heart Mountain, WY concentration camp.
