The Woodwards and Japanese internment
In 1942, Bainbridge islanders of Japanese ancestry were the first in the United States to be relocated to internment camps. The Review was the only English-language newspaper on the West Coast to openly criticize President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Executive Order 9066. Milly and Walt Woodward, the owners and editors of the Review, continued advocating for members of the community who were interned, and hired several as correspondents. These correspondents reported on camp events for publication in the Review.
A Bainbridge Island school, Woodward Middle School is named in honor of Milly Woodward.
