    Yamato Ichihashi, born in Japan, came to the United States and received his A.B. in Economics from Stanford in 1907, A.M. in 1908, and his Ph.D. from Harvard in 1914. He returned to Stanford in 1913 to become Professor of Japanese History and Government. His special interests included studies of Japanese in America and relations between Japan and the United States. He participated as observer and secretary for the Japanese Government during the Washington Arms limitation talks and conferences and the Institute of Pacific Relations. After Pearl Harbor, Dr. Ichihashi and his family were "relocated" with others of Japanese ancestry to places away from the immediate West Coast of the U.S. Following the end of the War, Ichihashi and his wife returned to Stanford.


    The Yamato Ichihashi papers consist of a small amount of biographical material; reports, notes and surveys concerning foreign relations between Japan and the West, 1919-1928; uncorrected texts of the Washington Arms Limitation Conferences 1921-1922; reports and correspondence concerning the Institute of Pacific Relations, 1925; studies and surveys made by Ichihashi and others dealing with the Japanese immigration to the U.S.; articles and reviews by Ichihashi; class notes and syllabi of his Japanese History courses, and selected student papers. Boxes 5 through 8 contain correspondence, notes and some memoirs of the World War II relocation of Japanese and Japanese-Americans from the West Coast of the U.S. Boxes 9 through 12 contain 21 diaries covering the years 1943-1963 recording current international news events.
