McVoy Jr. went to the University of Florida where he graduated with B.A. (education) and M.A. (sociology) degrees. He went on to a Ph.D. in sociology at the University of Minnesota in 1942, authoring a dissertation titled \"A Study of Wants and Their Satisfaction among a Sample of Rural People in Minnesota.\"<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-1\"><a href=\"#cite_note-1\">[1]</a></sup> Subsequently hired by the <a href=\"/wiki/War_Relocation_Authority\" title=\"War Relocation Authority\">War Relocation Authority</a>'s Community Analysis Section (CAS), McVoy was assigned to the Jerome, Arkansas, camp, arriving on April 23, 1943, where he worked out of an office in Block 36, presiding over a staff that included four <a href=\"/wiki/Nisei\" title=\"Nisei\">Nisei</a> fieldworkers and two Nisei clerical workers. McVoy instigated projects that included an analysis of population demographics by block as well as a survey of inmate attitudes toward \"relocation\" (WRA terminology for leaving the camp). WRA critic Peter T. Suzuki cites McVoy as one of the social scientists who effectively performed intelligence work, identifying inmates at Jerome whom he felt should be removed from the camp. Dispatched to Washington, DC after five months, inmate Kiyoshi Hamanaka took over as acting head of the Jerome CAS before resigning two months later. The Jerome CAS office subsequently shut down. Later, in April 1944, another analyst, anthropologist <a href=\"/wiki/Rachel_Reese_Sady\" title=\"Rachel Reese Sady\">Rachel Reese Sady</a>, spent three months in Jerome studying the closing of the camp.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-2\"><a href=\"#cite_note-2\">[2]</a></sup> After the war, McVoy held a wide variety of posts in academia and for the federal government, the United Nations, the International Manpower Institute and the Ford Foundation in the U.S., South America, the Middle East, and Asia.<sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-3\"><a href=\"#cite_note-3\">[3]</a></sup>\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a>, Densho</b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Niiya, Brian</div>\n<h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2>\n<p>[Final Report, Community Analysis Section, Rohwer].
