Born in Maibara, Japan, Harry Sotaro Kawabe (1890–1969) migrated to Seattle as a teenager in 1905, learning English and eventually operating a hotel and café. He journeyed to Alaska in 1909, initially as a cook, eventually settling in Seward where he built a thriving laundry business that served the railroad and steamship industries. This led to string of other businesses including restaurants, a gift shop, hardware store, and real estate ventures that made him one of the region's most prominent figures.\n </p>\n <p>\n  With the outbreak of World War II, Kawabe was among the Japanese American community leaders arrested and detained, to be held eventually at an internment camp at Fort Richardson, Alaska. After the war, he decided against returning to Alaska, settling in Seattle where he worked in real estate and established an import/export business. He returned to Seward in 1965 to form the Japanese and American Development Company of Alaska, an attempt to develop natural resources in Alaska for Japanese consumption.\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    Inouye, Ronald K. \"Harry Sotaro Kawabe: Issei Businessman of Seward and Seattle.\"\n    <i>\n     Alaska History\n    </i>\n    5 (Spring 1990): 35–43.\n   </p>\n   <p>\n    Ringsmuth, Katherine. \"\n    <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">\n     Service Unexcelled: A Tribute to Harry Kawabe\n    </a>\n    .\" Kenai Fjords National Park website.\n   </p>\n   <p>\n    Russell, Chas. \"Alaska—His Labor of Love.\"\n    <i>\n     Rafu Shimpo\n    </i>\n    , December 18, 1967, II-13, 22.\n   </p>\n   <!-- \nNewPP limit report\nCached time: 20230521153519\nCache expiry: 86400\nDynamic content: false\nComplications: []\nCPU time usage: 0.009 seconds\nReal time usage: 0.013 seconds\nPreprocessor visited node count: 117/1000000\nPost‐expand include size: 1669/2097152 bytes\nTemplate argument size: 209/2097152 bytes\nHighest expansion depth: 6/40\nExpensive parser function count: 0/100\nUnstrip recursion depth: 0/20\nUnstrip post‐expand size: 0/5000000 bytes\nExtLoops count: 0\n-->\n   <!--\nTransclusion expansion time report (%,ms,calls,template)\n100.00%    9.352      1 -total\n 70.95%    6.635      1 Template:Databox-People\n 14.23%    1.331      1 Template:Published\n 13.90%    1.300      1 Template:AuthorByline\n-->\n   <!-- Saved in parser cache with key encycmw:pcache:idhash:2505-0!canonical and timestamp 20230521153519 and revision id 27217\n -->\n  </div>\n </div>\n</div>\n<div class=\"toplink\">\n <a href=\"#top\">\n  <i class=\"icon-chevron-up\">\n  </i>\n  Top\n </a>\n</div>",
