Administrative history

Acting in his capacity as Custodian of Enemy Property, the Hon. Normon A. McLarty, K.C. Secretary of State, appointed the Advisory Committee on Japanese Properties in Greater Vancouver in 1943 for the purpose of advising him on matters relating to the disposal and effective use of Japanese evacuee real estate and chattels. Members of the Committee were the Hon. Justice Mr. Sidney Smith as chairman, City Alderman Charles Jones, Mr. Kishizo Kimura, and Mr. A.E. McMaster as executive assistant. Mr. H.S. Durkee succeeded Mr. McMaster in May 1943; Mr. Kimura resigned in July, leaving his position vacant. The sale of evacuee properties began in July 1943; the first auction of chattels was held in September. The executive office of the Committee was closed in June 1945.
