Valuable information about Jujiro Wada and his life story was brought to Japan by the 2nd generation Japanese-American Norio Mitsuoka.
In 1963 his daughter Noriko had some questions about how much was true after reading Jack London, and learning that the famous author befriended Wada. These inquiries guided her and her father to the local Alaskan historian Robert De Armond.
The article “This is My Country” by De Armond in the magazine Alaska, (published 1983) was a most informative article on the life of Wada. He also was the first to provide details on Wada`s death. De Armond brought these to the attention of Mitsuoka, as well as the excellent article “Ju Wada as I knew him” by Frank Cotter written in 1937.
These information enabled Norio Mitsuoka to find the death certificate of Jujiro Wada. After learning so many forgotten details, in 1992 Norio Mitsuka visited Ehime, Japan, to meet Mr. Toshio Wada, the descendant of Jujiro Wada.
