Series 3
Deportation from South Korea, 1974-1975
Box 2

Scope and Content Note

Documents related to Ogle’s deportation from South Korea in December 1974. Included in the folders titled “Documents re: Deportation” is background information on the arrest and imprisonment of eight men whom the South Korean government claimed had ties to the Communist party. Ogle’s decision to speak out against their imprisonment was a major factor leading to his deportation. Of particular interest are letters written by George Ogle to his wife and children on the day of his deportation, as he sat in an upstairs room of their home. There are also letters from Dorothy Ogle and the children to George during their period of separation following the deportation. One folder contains information on George Ogle’s post-deportation trip to Japan in February 1975.
