Stationed in Busan, South Korea after the Korean War cease-fire, Cliff Strovers served with the 44th Engineering Construction Group to begin rebuilding infrastructure. While constructing roads, port facilities and the city's first hospital, he photographed Koreans moving about their daily lives.

When he returned home to Grinnell, the photos were stored away for 55 years until he returned to Korea and met Suck-hwan Dang who encouraged him to exhibit his work. The exhibit of 35 color photographs and Strovers' stories will be on display for the first time at the Grout Museum from November 2013 through March 2014.
