Memorandum prepared by the Army Counter
Intelligence Corps on the Tokyo Rose phenomenon
In a memo dated January 7, 1946 an unknown author submits an analysis of the
Tokyo Rose legend. He essentially ridicules the service personnel who believed
in an all-seeing, all-knowing Tokyo Rose and states that despite all the
monitoring of Japanese propaganda broadcasts, not one shred of evidence
exists to substantiate the rumors. Unfortunately, the CIC never published this
memo and the American public continued to believe fervently in her existence.
