Finding Asian American History: Korean Commission at the Continental Trust Building

The Korean Commission office was located on the ninth floor of the Continental Trust Building from 1919 into the mid-1920s. It was established by Syngman Rhee to coordinate fundraising and to lobby for US political support for Korean independence after the peninsula was annexed by Japan in 1910.
