Born in Montebello, California, Paul Nakadate grew up in San Diego and had graduated from San Diego State College before setting in Los Angeles, where he sold insurance before the war. After the forced removal of Japanese Americans from the West Coast, he and his family were incarcerated at\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Heart_Mountain/\" title=\"Heart Mountain\">\n   Heart Mountain\n  </a>\n  . At Heart Mountain, he joined the teaching staff of the night school and later became vice-president of the Heart Mountain Teachers' Association.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">\n    [1]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n </p>\n <p>\n  Nakadate, who had been secretary of the\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Heart_Mountain_Congress_of_American_Citizens/\" title=\"Heart Mountain Congress of American Citizens\">\n   Heart Mountain Congress of American Citizens\n  </a>\n  , was one of the leaders of the Heart Mountain Fair Play Committee (FPC) and its vice-chairman, known for his speechmaking. After FPC chairman\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Kiyoshi_Okamoto/\" title=\"Kiyoshi Okamoto\">\n   Kiyoshi Okamoto\n  </a>\n  was dispatched to\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Tule_Lake/\" title=\"Tule Lake\">\n   Tule Lake\n  </a>\n  , Nakadate assumed chairmanship. However, after questioning by Heart Mountain director\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Guy_Robertson/\" title=\"Guy Robertson\">\n   Guy Robertson\n  </a>\n  on March 30, 1944, Nakadate too was exiled to Tule Lake in mid-April. After his conspiracy conviction, he was one of the four leaders given more severe sentences of four years' imprisonment. As a married man with a young child, Nakadate took on a leadership role in the FPC despite the fact that he would not have been eligible for the draft. 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  Nakadate died at age 49 in Los Angeles.\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    .
