An American in Joseon Korea: George Foulk

Born in 1856, George Clayton Foulk was an officer of the US navy who was sent to Asia at the end of the 19th century. During his first mission he became fluent in Korean and Japanese and was later appointed Minister to the Kingdom of Korea from 1885 to 1886 and again from 1886 to 1887. The numerous pictures he took during his time in Korea are an invaluable historical legacy.
