Modeled on such mainstream magazines as\n  <i>\n   Life\n  </i>\n  and\n  <i>\n   Look\n  </i>\n  ,\n  <i>\n   Nisei Vue\n  </i>\n  mixed articles and photographs to highlight mostly positive aspects of Nisei life.\n  <i>\n   Nisei Vue\n  </i>\n  was one of two very similar such magazines published in\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Resettlement_in_Chicago/\" title=\"Resettlement in Chicago\">\n   Chicago\n  </a>\n  , the other being\n  <i>\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Scene_(magazine)/\" title=\"Scene (magazine)\">\n    Scene\n   </a>\n  </i>\n  , which began publication a year later.\n </p>\n <p>\n  The first issue of the quarterly magazine was dated Spring 1948. \"Here is your first issue of the Nisei Vue, the first attempt by the Nisei to publish a pictorial publication devoted primarily for the interest of the Nisei,\" read the issue's introduction. Published by Art Hayashi, with Shigemi Mazawa serving as editor-in-chief, the 34-page issue featured unsigned articles on\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Sansei/\" title=\"Sansei\">\n   Sansei\n  </a>\n  orphans, resettlement, and glowing profiles of\n  <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Mike_Masaoka/\" title=\"Mike Masaoka\">\n   Mike Masaoka\n  </a>\n  and Rev. Jitsuo Morikawa, along with other short profiles, a story on a Nisei girls club in Chicago, coverage of a beauty contest and fishing tournament, and a fashion spread. As with other issues, the cover featured a cheesecake image of a Nisei woman, in this case a Chicago art student and commercial artist Nori Kenmotsu. The cover price was 25¢ with the subscription cost set at $1. The second issue appeared in September, with publisher Hayashi noting that 10,000 copies had been printed. In what was perhaps a sign of financial difficulties, he also noted that the new subscription rate would be increased to $1.25.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref1_1-0\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref1-1\">\n    [1]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n </p>\n <p>\n  In February of 1949,\n  <i>\n   Nisei Vue\n  </i>\n  became a monthly, with the subscription rate raised to $2 per year. But by that summer, publisher Hayashi noted the difficulties inherent in the monthly schedule in announcing the return to a quarterly publication schedule. The magazine suspended publication for good in March of 1950.\n  <sup class=\"reference\" id=\"cite_ref-ftnt_ref2_2-0\">\n   <a class=\"\" href=\"#cite_note-ftnt_ref2-2\">\n    [2]\n   </a>\n  </sup>\n </p>\n <div id=\"authorByline\">\n  <b>\n   Authored by\n   <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/Brian_Niiya/\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">\n    Brian Niiya\n   </a>\n   , Densho\n  </b>\n </div>\n <div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">\n  Niiya, Brian\n </div>\n <div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n  <h2>\n   <span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">\n    For More Information\n   </span>\n  </h2>\n  <div class=\"section_content\">\n   <p>\n    <i>\n     Nisei Vue\n    </i>\n    in Densho Digital Repository.\n    <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">\n\n    </a>\n    .\n   </p>\n   <p>\n    Lim, Shirley Jennifer.\n    <a class=\"external text offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\">\n     <i>\n      Feeling of Belonging: Asian American Women's Popular Culture, 1930–1960\n     </i>\n    </a>\n    .
