Hawaiian Young Buddhists Association]
TWO GROUP PHOTOGRAPHS FEATURING THE RECENT GRADUATES OF THE HAWAIIAN BUDDHIST SCHOOL AT HONPA HONGWANJI HILO BETSUIN]
[Hilo, Hi.], 1939. Two silver gelatin photographs, each 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches. Minor surface wear and light scratches. Near fine. A wonderful pair of images capturing the 1939 graduating classes, teachers, and staff of the Honpa Hongwanji Hilo Betsuin in Hilo, Hawaii. One image shows the female graduates of the high school; the second shows the middle school graduates. Each is captioned near the bottom in Japanese and both are dated "June 4, 1939" in ink at lower left. The mission also housed a branch of the Hawaiian Young Buddhists Association, evidenced by the sign hanging over the entrance to the building, and the students pictured here were likely members of HYBA, as well. The Honpa Hongwanji Hilo Betsuin still stands and still serves the Buddhist community in Hilo. It is the oldest Buddhist temple in Hawaii, still houses a Young Buddhists Association, and services over 500 families in the Hilo area.
