Chin and others, mild dampstain to the bottom edge of the last 50 pages into the margins, otherwise very good in original pictorial cloth with color photo affixed to the front cover. K. Chin, of Chinese ancestry, was born in Portland, Oregon in 1920, where he received his initial art training at the Portland Museum School of Art and the University of Oregon. K. Chin, during World War II, served as a mechanical draftsman with the US Air Corps, at which time he sharpened his skill at rendering detailed images. He served for 4-1/2 years. He illustrated magazine covers for US Army, American Legion, and later, Cue Magazine and Newsweek." This is the only in formation I was able to find on the internet about K. Chin: There are many more illustrations in the yearbook. Apologies for the iphone photos. (Jen Thomas)
