This chapter examines the convergence of ideas and practices regarding respective nation-building among the educated elements of Issei men and women, Tokyo's diplomats, and white Californians. It also hopes to shed light on their divergence from ordinary Japanese immigrants, who never seriously heeded the elite vision of ideal citizen-subjects. The formation of Japanese immigrant leadership and community, and moral reform under racial exclusion are discussed.

Keywords:   Japanese, Issei, Japanese men, Japanese women, immigrants, leadership, community, moral reform, racial exclusion
