“Grocer-photographer Mitsutaro Fuku, who had not been an SCC member, became one the foremost photographers in Seattle during the 1930s, displaying his works in salons in the United States, Europe, and Aisa, and in 1934 he became the director of the Seattle Photographic society. To encourage photography among the younger generation, the Furuya Camera Club, which formed int he late 1920s, or early 1930s, sponsored children’s competitions.”
