Biographical history

Chizu Uchida was born in Vancouver and attended the Powell Street Church (Japanese Mission) with her family until the internment of Japanese Canadians in 1942. She and her family attended the Japanese United Church in Montreal for a short while until returning to Vancouver in the mid-1950s. From that point, Chizu was a member of the Vancouver Japanese United Church, and a founding member of the English-Speaking Congregation in 1969. She served on the Church Board and also for a time as secretary of the national Japanese United Church Conference (Kyogikai). She died in 2017.

Immediate source of acquisition

Records were transferred to the Archives by Chizu Uchida's niece, Carol Kumikawa, in two installments (October 2019 and January 2020).


Kyogikai records are kept physically with the Vancouver Japanese United Church fonds, as they arrived mixed in with Vancouver Japanese United Church (English-Speaking Congregation) records.
