The August 1949 issue of the women’s magazine, Fujin Gaho/婦人画報 (Prange Call No. F62), included an article entitled, “Seimei no tomoshibi: Kaminari oyaji/生命の灯：雷おやぢ,” by Takashi Nagai/永井隆 (1908-1951). Nagai was a physician who survived the dropping of the atomic bomb on Nagasaki. His experiences were memorialized in what is perhaps his best known work, The Bells of Nagasaki/長崎の鐘 (Prange call no. D-0336).
In this article, Nagai described the Emperor’s visit to his bedside. His two children were present. The article included several photographs — one of the Emperor’s visit, several of Nagai and his children, and one of Nagai conducting research with a microscope while bedridden.
