Looking for the owners of this vintage Zenith radio
 

Do you know someone who use to own a radio like this:. 

      Will Barnett purchased this radio for $7.00
from an elderly gentleman who lived at 109 NE
Liberty Avenue in Gresham, Oregon.
 (Approximately 1989/1990)  The elderly
gentlemen told Will that he obtained the radio
from a family of Japanese descent just before
they were interned at camp during WWII. 
records show that no neighbors of Japanese
descent lived on Liberty Avenue in the early
1940s. 
     Could the Japanese family lived further away,
 or could the elderly gentlemen lived elsewhere in
1942?  The search is on for the missing family who
use to own this Zenith radio.  .
