The lone\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Issei/\" title=\"Issei\">\n   Issei\n  </a>\n  among FPC leaders, Guntaro Kubota (1903–67) wrote and translated material in Japanese and gave presentations in Japanese aimed at securing Issei support for the work of the FPC. Kubota was born in Nagano, Japan, on August 16, 1903, and graduated from Meiji University in Tokyo. He migrated to the U.S. just before the ban on Japanese immigration took effect in 1924. He became a\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Japanese_language_schools/\" title=\"Japanese language schools\">\n   Japanese language school\n  </a>\n  teacher in Cupertino, California, and married one his\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Nisei/\" title=\"Nisei\">\n   Nisei\n  </a>\n  former students, Gloria Kasano. When the family went sent to\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Santa_Anita_(detention_facility)/\" title=\"Santa Anita (detention facility)\">\n   Santa Anita Assembly Center\n  </a>\n  and then on to\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Heart_Mountain/\" title=\"Heart Mountain\">\n   Heart Mountain\n  </a>\n  , they had an infant daughter; a son was later born in camp.\n </p>\n <p>\n  Though he was not eligible for the draft as an \"enemy alien\" and had a family to support, Kubota was drawn to the principles of the FPC and worked to secure Issei financial support. Along with six other leaders of the FPC, and journalist\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/James_Omura/\" title=\"James Omura\">\n   James Omura\n  </a>\n  , 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. His conviction and those of the other FPC leaders was overturned on appeal at the end of 1945, and, with the government ultimately deciding not to pursue the case further, he was released from prison in February 1946.\n </p>\n <p>\n  After his release from prison, the family settled in Saratoga, California, where Kubota worked as a landscape contractor. He passed away on May 13, 1967.\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Brian_Niiya/\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n    Brian Niiya\n   </a>\n   , Densho\n  </b>\n </div>\n <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n  Niiya, Brian\n </div>\n <div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n  <h2>\n   <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n    For More Information\n   </span>\n  </h2>\n  <div class=\"section_content\">\n   <p>\n    Chin, Frank. \"Come All Ye Asian American Writers of the Real and the Fake.\" In\n    <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">\n     <i>\n      The Big Aiiieeeee!: An Anthology of Chinese American and Japanese American Literature\n     </i>\n    </a>\n    .
