Tsuguo “Ike” Ikeda (1924–2015) served for more than 30 years as the first Asian American executive director of a non-profit in the United States. He was hired as the first professional director of the Atlantic Street Center, a non-profit social service agency that has been operating since 1910 in Seattle, Washington. Ikeda was a pioneer who built multiracial relations; he was a visionary and a pacesetter, always ahead of his time.
