Biographical history

Jerry Jiro Yasutome was born August 8, 1919, in Portland, Oregon. He married Irene Toshiko Morioka in 1941. Between 1942 and 1946, the Yasutome family was incarcerated by the United States government at the Tule Lake Relocation Center in California. The Tule Lake Relocation Center was one of ten American concentration camps to which Japanese Americans were forcibly removed and incarcerated during World War II. The Yasutomes' son, James Mamoru Yasutome, was born at Tule Lake in 1943. After the family's release from Tule Lake at the end of the war, they returned to Portland, and Jerry Yasutome attended the Northwest School of Photography, circa 1946-1948. He worked as a photographer and photofinisher in Portland. Jerry Yasutome died on July 25, 1994.
