In honor of the centennial anniversary of its inaugural 1909 class, the Seattle Japanese Language School (JLS) is requesting that JLS alumni bring photos of past school events between 1902 and 1960. Original photographs will be photocopied and returned to their owners. Copies of the photos will be saved in the JLS’s historical archive. In the early years of its establishment, JLS began as the Kokugo Gakko (National Language School) and changed its name to Nihongo Gakko (Japanese Language School) after its reopening in 1956. To submit photographs to be copied, please visit 1414 South Weller Street, Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (end)
