[LOS ANGELES TIMES] – Thirteen years ago, crews renovating a modest, white-walled single-story building in Exposition Park made a discovery in the attic crawl space.

The building, a Los Angeles city-designated historic landmark, had served as the headquarters of one of the oldest Korean groups to be established in the U.S. The Korean National Assn. had functioned as a government in exile, and led independence efforts against Japanese colonial rule in the Korean peninsula in the early 1900s.

Among the stacks of papers was a 1919 letter to President Woodrow Wilson, asking for his help and protesting the “brutal force” being used to suppress independence efforts back home.
