This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was published in the The Chico Enterprise Record, c. 1935:

How two former Chico High School Students met in Japan recently has been related in a letter received by Miss Angeline Stansbury, art teacher at Chico High School.  The letter was from a former pupil, Ancil P. McNett and tells of a meeting with Edward Terada, now a well known artist in Japan.

The letter states that Ancil P. McNett re-enlisted in the army last July.  He was shipped to Japan in November as a cook.  He was at first assistant mess sergeant but is now mess sergeant with staff sergeant's rating.

We quote that part of the letter which tells of him meeting his former school mate Edward Terada.

"Well, we had the walls of our mess hall painted white.  Then we had two artists paint pictures on the walls.  I was talking to one of the Japanese artists one day and told him of Edward.  He asked me to write his name on paper so I did.  Then just like that he said he had heard of him and that he was well known in Japan with his work as an artist.  He then told me he would write to the Artists' Association and get his address for me.  Well he did that and received an answer.  He then wrote to Terada and told him I was here and wanted to see him.  Well he came out and saw me yesterday.  It sure was nice to see him.  We talked of old times and he wanted to know all the boys and girls we went to school with.  We had quite a chat talking about this and that.  I had him for supper and he sure enjoyed it.

He told me about the war in Japan and how he was treated.  He was a marked man all during the war.  He said he would try and write to you again."

After graduation form Chico High School Edward Terada continued with his art studies and his work was shown in numerous exhibitions in this country. Then came the war and silence.

McNett asked Miss Stansbury to remember him to other teachers who knew him and to other school mates.
