Taikyue Ree somewhere over the Pacific (~1939)

This is a photo of my grandfather. This may have been taken around 1939 somewhere over the Pacific when he came as a postdoctoral student to study at Princeton University.

As you can see by what he is holding, photography runs in the family. 😉

A student of my grandfather (and my mom) managed to get a hold of an old family album sometime after his death in 1992. Because Korea is making a postage stamp of him, he digitized, posted the images for the steering committee, whereupon my uncle sent them to me. It is kind of crazy what sort of memories flipping through these scans bring to me, I can’t imagine how it makes my uncle feel.
