Description
Full title:Shugo William Seno and a fellow worker are lettering copy at one of New York's leading advertising art studios. Mr. Seno--co-workers call him Bill--is an expert letterer. He was offered his present job when samples of his work were submitted by a New York relocation officer to the head of the studio ten days before he came to New York in March, 1944, from the Jerome Relocation Center. A native of San Luis Obispo, California, Bill attended a commercial art school in Los Angeles for three years and worked there for five years as an advertising artist prior to evacuation in April, 1942, to the Santa Anita Assembly Center. While at Santa Anita, he was married to Miss Marie Nakagawa, also of Los Angeles. Mr. and Mrs. Seno went to Jerome in October 1942, together with other members of both families. Still living at Jerome are Mrs. Seno and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ezo Nakagawa; also, Mr. Seno's mother, Mrs. Fuji Seno, his grandmother, and two brothers. New York, New York.
