    Biography/History

    Hans H. Baerwald was born in Tokyo to German-Jewish parents on June 18, 1927. He attended The American School in Japan and became fluent in Japanese, German, French and English. The family immigrated to Berkeley, California in 1940 where Baerwald graduated from Berkeley High School and began course work at University of California, Berkeley.
    At the age of 18, Baerwald left UC Berkeley when he was drafted into the U.S. Army and sent to the Army Japanese Language School. As a second lieutenant, he worked out of General Douglas MacArthur's headquarters in Tokyo during the American occupation of Japan and participated in the political purge of Japanese leaders. Baerwald discusses this as a formative experience that shaped the remainder of his career and of which he wrote extensively.
    He returned to UC Berkeley in 1949 and graduated in 1950 with an interdisciplinary major focused on Japan. Baerwald then entered Berkeley's political science doctoral program, returned to Japan for his dissertation research, and obtained his Ph.D. in 1956. After the completion of his doctorate, Baerwald accepted a position as assistant professor of Asian Government and Politics at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He worked there until 1962 when he joined the Department of Political Science at UCLA where his teaching focused on Japanese studies courses until his retirement in 1991.
    While at UCLA, Baerwald served on numerous committees, founded the Southern California Japan Seminar, and directed UCLA's Education Abroad Program Study Center in Tokyo. He also directed the Japan Exchange Program (JEP) and its successor, the Japan Research and Exchange Program (JAREP), for which he received a major endowment from the Japan Shipbuilding Industry Foundation.
    Among his major publications are "The Purge of Japanese Leaders under the Occupation," "Japan's Parliament: An Introduction," and "Party Politics in Japan," all of which were also published in Japan. Prior to his retirement from UCLA, Baerwald was awarded the Order of the Sacred Treasure, Gold and Silver Star, by the Japanese government on behalf of the Emperor of Japan, in recognition of his contributions to the improvement of relations between the United States and Japan.
    Baerwald spent much of his retirement on his 80-acre Pope Valley ranch in northern California where he died on June 2, 2010.
    ハンズ・H. ベアワルドは1927年6月18日に ドイツ人とユダヤ人の子として東京に生まれる。アメリカンスクール・イン・ジャパン (ASIJ)に在席し英語、フランス語、ドイツ語、そしてץ本語を習得஺1940年、家族がカリフォルニア州のバークリーに移住、そこでバークリー高校を卒業、カリフォルニア大学バークリー校で講義を受け始める。
    18歳になると大学をはなれる、米陸軍に召集され、陸軍日本語学校に送られる。少尉として、日本占領時に東京のダグラス・マッカーサー将軍本部で勤め、公職追放に携わる。このときの経験が後の生涯そして著書に多大な影響を与えたと本人が語っている。 1949年、バークリー校に戻り、1950年に日本に焦点を絞った学際専攻で卒業。そして、バークリー校の政治学博士課へ入学、日本の地で博士論文研究をし、1956年に博士号を取得。その後、オハイオ州オックスフォード市にあるマイアミ大学でアジア行政の助教授として働き始める。1962年までマイアミ大学で勤め、1991年に退職時するまでカリフォルニア大学ロサンゼルス校(UCLA)の政治学科で日本学を中心に教鞭を執る。
    UCLAでは、さまざまな委員会に所属し、南カリフォルニア日本研究集会の立ち上げ、東京のUCLA留学プログラムスタディセンターなどを監督する。また、日本留学プログラム、その後の日本研究・留学プログラムを日本造船産業財団からの援助を受け指揮を執る。
    主な著書は「指導者追放 占領下日本政治史の一断面」、「日本人と政治文化」、「日本における政党政治」などがあり日本でも出版されいる。UCLAでの教職を退く前に、日米関係の回復に貢献したとして、内閣総理大臣より瑞宝重光章を受賞。
    定年後は80エーカーある北カリフォルニアのポープバリー農園で多くの時間を過ごし、2010年6月2日にその地で永眠。
