Tsutomu \"Ben\" Wakaye (1913–52) was born in Honolulu, but moved with family to San Francisco before starting the second grade. He went on to graduate from Galileo High in 1931. He subsequently worked for his father's carpentry shop and for a Japanese trading company before landing a job as an insurance salesman.\n</p><p>Incarcerated at <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Heart_Mountain\" title=\"Heart Mountain\">Heart Mountain</a> during World War II, he became part of the draft resistance movement through the Fair Play Committee, his insurance background qualifying him to be its treasurer. He subsequently refused to report for his pre-induction physical, resulting in his arrest and eventual trial and conviction. Along with six other leaders of the FPC, and journalist <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/James_Omura\" title=\"James Omura\">James Omura</a>, he was later charged with conspiracy to counsel, aide, and abet draft resistance, with all but Omura found guilty. He was given a sentence of two years, but was already serving a three year sentence for his draft evasion conviction. He served out his sentence and was released in 1947.\n</p><p>He returned to San Francisco, rejoining his family. He experienced difficulty finding a job and eventually worked as a janitor. He died of kidney failure in 1952 at age 39.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Biography on <i>Conscience and the Constitution</i> site, <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"http://www.pbs.org/itvs/conscience/the_story/characters/wakaye_ben.html\" rel=\"nofollow\">http://www.pbs.org/itvs/conscience/the_story/characters/wakaye_ben.html</a>.\n</p><p>Chin, Frank. <i>Born in the USA: A Story of Japanese America, 1889–1947</i>.
