According to the US Census, only 390 persons of Japanese ancestry lived in Chicago in 1940. By the end of the decade, with the influx of former residents of the West Coast, the number of Japanese in Chicago grew exponentially. But who were those early Japanese Chicagoans? Where and how did they live?
On Sunday, September 26, we will meet some of the Japanese who lived in Chicago before World War II. Mayumi Hoshino, doctoral candidate at Indiana University Bloomington, will highlight some of the significant moments and key figures in the city's Japanese community between the 1890s and the early 1930s. Using historical images, as well as geographical and statistical information, she will shed light on the ways in which the first generation of Japanese immigrants resiliently survived in the Windy City.
This event is free and open to the publicbut donations will be gratefully accepted. Seating is limited, so contact Karen at 773.275.0097, ext. 222,
