Description
Full title:In the printing plant of the Message Publishing Company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Shojiro Horikawa, Issei from the Colorado River Relocation Center, is practicing the trade he knows from long experience. For fourteen years, until he and his family were evacuated in April 1942, Mr. Horikawa owned and operated Olympic Press in San Francisco. While at Poston, he was superintendent of the print shop and also served as an interpreter and translator. Later he was an instructor in translation in the adult education courses. He was also a block representative. Mr. Horikawa attended a foreign language college in Japan, Broadway High School in Seattle, Washington, and Heald Commercial College in San Francisco. Before undertaking his own printing business there, he had been a buyer of stationery and office supplies for the Oriental Steamship Company, a secretary, and a translator for two insurance companies. Mr. and Mrs. Horikawa and one of their two sons, Jun Herbert, 11, now live in a Philadelphia apartment house, in which two other resettled families from Central Utah also have apartments. Another son, Richard Noboru, is a senior at Westtown School in nearby Westtown, Pennsylvania, where he lives in the school dormitory. Richard is captain-elect of the school's basketball team. Jun Herbert attends Friends Select School in Philadelphia. Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
