    Hawaii internment and arrest records for suspected enemy aliens

    Laura McGuire Newbie

      Hello,

      I am trying to figure out where I might find records on the arrest warrant and internment of Alfred Preis, who was arrested an interred as an enemy alien in Honolulu, Hawaii after the attack on Pearl Harbor. Preis was interred for several months at the Sand Island detention facility. As these arrests were carried out under the US military, the Hawaiian state government does not have records. Any advice on where to locate internment records would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks!
