Summary expansion
The photographer has documented his journey from Omaha, Nebraska in May 1916 to Japan, travelling with other young American men and women who have been hired to teach in the government school in Lingayen. Names of fellow teachers include Winfield Scott, Jean G. Jones, J. Truitt Maxwell, Woodcook, and Noble. The young people travel by train through Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, and Oregon to Seattle, Washington, as seen in views of the trains, tracks, and passing sights such as Indian burial grounds in Green River, Wyo., mountains, streams, and the Columbia River in Oregon, and Puget Sound and the waterfront in Seattle; in Seattle, the photographer visits his sister Shirley and family. Other Seattle sights include the Ballard Locks, and Bremerton Navy Yard. From Vancouver, British Columbia, the group sails to Yokohama, Japan aboard the Empress of Asia, a Canadian Pacific steamship. Photos of rickshaws, temples, the Imperial Palace, and street scenes document the group's stay in Tokyo. In Kobe, they visit the Daibutsu, a giant Buddha statue, Motomachi Street, the local cemetery, and Shinkoji Temple. There are also pictures of Japanese junks in Kobe Harbor, and the Inland Sea. Along the way they visit Nagasaki, and finally arrive in the Philippines June 6, 1916. The photographer is assigned to Pangasinan High School in Lingayen. The photographs that follow document the streets in Lingayen, church, store of E.C. Smithers, market, cemetery, the photographer's thatched home and mosquito-netted cot, and the beach. Activities include picknicking with the American community, swimming in Lingayen Bay, and playing baseball. There are photos of peasants with their bull (carabao) cart, hay gatherers, rice threshers, Filipina school girls, fishermen mending nets, and a boatman ferrying carriages (carromatas) across the Pasig River on a cable ferry. Several larger photographs are group shots of track team and classes at Pangasinan High School. At the Senior Picnic held in 1917 in the Zambales Mountains, students enjoy the waterfalls and roast pig (lechón) for lunch. In 1917, the teachers attend the Y.M.C.A. Conference in Sibul Springs, documented in views of the railroad car, a country road, the "balneario," the International Hotel, and the cave of Madlum, accessed by means of a "balsa" or log raft. Photos dated May 1917 in Manila are captioned H.O. Mozingo, H.A. Wendt, W.W. Walker, and F.O. Maxwell (Frank Maxwell, June 1916 graduate of Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana). While in Manila, the photographer captured the harbor, the transport "Sheridan" leaving for the United States, Masonic Temple, and the Y.M.C.A.. In January 1918, several of the young men enlist in the Army, including Maxwell, Warner, and Wendt
