Growing Up

Susan Ahn Cuddy was born in Los Angeles, the daughter of Dosan Chang Ho and Helen Ahn, the first married Korean couple to immigrate to the U.S. Her father was an advocate for a free Korea, and left his family in California to return back to Korea to help lobby for its freedom from Japan. He would be imprisoned and die there

This is a photograph of the Ahn family circa 1917. It comes from the collection of Susan Ahn Cuddy and the Island Mountain Trading Co.
