In 1915 She Chew, a merchant at Tsue Chong Co., 412 8th Avenue South, Seattle, Washington, applied to have his son, Ng Fung Yuen, a student, join him in Seattle.
The application was rejected because Ng Fung Yuen did not answer the questions accurately. An appeal was filed and Ng Fung Yuen was re-examined. The testimony of additional witnesses, Ah Gow, Ng Yee Loon and Ng Soon Aim agreed with the applicant. Over 80 pages of testimony were given. The previous decision rejecting the applicant was reversed and Ng Fung Yuen was admitted.
The photos, exhibit K and G are of Ng Fung Yuen and his brothers.
