Japanese people
Japanese people moved to Mequon, worked for the Mequon
canning company hired by Jno. F. Nieman. These people
came mostly from California. Residents objected vehemently
and asked that a meeting be held by the Town Board in re-
gard to the invasion as they called it. Meeting was held
in the Town Hall. The hall was packed with residents
objecting to the Japanese invasion. Mr. Nieman agreed
that no more would be employed.
