도산  Dosan  means Island Mountain.

"One final ingredient which entered the mold that produced Dosan, the nationalist leader, was a sense of personal destiny as a leader, a pioneer, someone destined to stand out, and possibly, stand alone. This sense was reflected in his choice of his pen name when he observed the lonely splendor of the Hawaiian peaks towering from the vastness of the surrounding ocean." 

                  Arthur Leslie Gardner

Dosan's life is an example of right action and honesty. His leadership and love of his country and his countrymen was "sincere". His patriotic leadership against the Japanese Occupation of Asia was the key to Korea's being an independent nation, today. Dosan stopped Japan from obliterating Korea's culture and its history.

Dosan's Four Main Principles:

  • Seek the Truth
  • Act upon the Truth
  • Be Loyal and Trustworthy 
  • Be Courageous to Uphold the Truth

Example Intro Text

November 9th



You did so much

and took so little.

Koreans have lost

sight of you.

They don't hear

your words.

They still don't

tell the truth.

You need to

come back once more.

"Discouragement of the youth

                           is the death of the nation!"

The students and their teachers were outstanding!

Each year hundreds of Koreans and Korean Americans made visits to learn more about their heritage and their history and new aspects of Dosan's Legacy.

Unfortunately, COVID ended over 30 years of  "visiting hours'. Students from South Korea and Southern California were frequent visitors to the "Muhan Dojeon Dosan Set". Many people came to see artifacts, documents and other historical material that helped them understand the Truth about Korean and Korean American history. People would leave here realizing they have been given a lot of propaganda about Dosan instead of the true story.

Students From Gwangju

High School and College group from Gwangju on a tour of American universities stopped to see some of the archives, hold history in their hands and learn about some facts not known to them about  Korea history and Dosan.

History Speaks

When the history you read about becomes 3d and stands in front of you it creates a deep connection to the spirit and activities of your heritage. In some cases feel determines truth beyond words.

As a reaction to March First Protest against Japan's Occupation of Korea and the extensive cruelty of the Japanese - groups of Koreans in America gathered in patriotic support of their country. This flag was used in April 1919 during a parade to bring attention concerning the inhumane dominance of Korea by Japan to Americans. This parade took place in Philadelphia.
