1942-PRESIDENT FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT signed Executive Order# 9066- The JAPANESE INTERNMENT ACT- All along the Pacific Coast first and second generation Japanese-Americans were uprooted from their homes and property and with what only they could carry were shipped off to camps in the desert. Few Japanese-Americans were interned in Hawaii however, because it would have seriously depleted the population. Many got no restitution for their lost property. Animators interned included Disney background artist Chris Ishii, and Iwao Takamoto, who would one day design Scooby Doo.
1960- Bill Keane's "Family Circus" cartoon strip debuts.
