Miss Oliver was interviewed circa 1924 as part of the Survey on Race Relations, a sociological study examining the experiences of "Oriental" - Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, and Sikh - immigrants and their children on the West Coast of the United States. It is clear from her statements that, however progressive Miss Oliver was in her attitudes towards the Japanese, she was not entirely free from the racial and ethnic prejudice that so thoroughly marked and shaped the early twentieth century. It is also clear that Little Tokyo was a highly diverse neighborhood, with children of many races and ethnicities displaying varying degrees of acceptance or hostility towards each other.
