Newly Acquired Gift Collection: Addition to the Justin Williams Sr. Paper

Tokyo, fall of 1945: 東京一九四五年・秋. (1946). Tokyo: Bunka-sha. and Baker, F. (1949). Jeeper’s Japan. Tokyo, Japan: Toppan.

Justin Williams Sr. was Chief of the Legislative Division (later known as the Parliamentary and Political Division) of GHQ/SCAP during the Occupation of Japan. The Justin Williams, Sr. Papers provide an unequalled view of parliamentary, political and constitutional change in Japan after World War II.

In 2016, Justin Williams Jr., Justin Williams Sr.’s son, donated several additional items to the collection. Among them, we are featuring two interesting items here: “Jeeper’s Japan” and “Fall of Tokyo 1945.”
