CHINESE OF HONOLULU COMPLETES COURSE IN ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY

YEW CHAR

Studied Profession Two Years In Chicago College—May Enter Business Here

Yew Char, a well known Chinese boy of Honolulu has just finished a two year course of study in a Chicago photographic institution and is returning to the city as an expert camera man and technical man in the great modern art. He is the first Chinese to obtain a complete education in this business.

Yew Char really completed the course in one year, but not satisfied with that and determined to learn practically all they could teach, took a post graduate course which took the greater part of his second year. He has been engaged actively in the photographic business recently in the states.

He has a brother in the same profession in this city. It is not known yet whether he will enter the business with the brother here or will return to the states.
