Photographic record of Korean American activist Earn Hong's travels in the United States and Peru between 1919 and 1922.
Earn (or Eurn) Hong (1880-1951) was an active member of the Korean American community in Hawaii and California in the early 20th century. He first moved to the United States in 1905, studied in Hawaii, and eventually moved to San Francisco in 1911. In California, Hong became a representative of the Manchurian General Assembly of the Korean People's Association (or Korean National Association) in November 1912. Hong served in various positions in the Association over the next decade, including as vice president of the organization during the time represented by these photographs. He continued to serve the Korean and Korean American community, as Overseas Chinese Commissioner in 1935 and as Secretary of the Korean Federation in 1944. Hong passed away on March 25, 1951.
