Edward Miyakawa was born in Sacramento in 1934. He was raised in the Sacramento area near his mother's parents who farmed in Florin after immigrating from Japan as young adults. The entire family was interned at Tule Lake together, but after a year, Edward's father found a sponsor in Boulder, Colorado where they lived for the duration of the war. After his father attempted to establish the family in Colorado, they decided to move back to Sacramento.
In the mid-fifties, Edward lived in Japan for two years as an enlistee of the U.S. Navy. He graudated from the University of California with a Bachelor of Architecture of Architecture degree in 1962. He has practiced architecture on the coast of Oregon for over 30 years, raising an adopted family of six children with his wife, Mary. They adopted Kimiko form Korea, Huong and Mahn from Viet Nam, Keith and Isaac, African-American sons, and Kanka from India. They have four grandchildren.
Through the lives of his children and grandchildren he has extended a 700 year history of a samarai family to the dream so well expressed by Martin Luther King Jr. that there would come a day when children of all races will experience equality and justice and freedom in a world that respects the intgrity and talents of all peoples.
