Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection largely contains correspondence with some memoranda, proposals, financial documents, class materials, and photographs. Much of the correspondence is that of Robert H. Brower, John D. Goheen, Thomas C. Smith, and Kurt Steiner; other correspondents include T. E. Gore, Paul Hanna, Shinzo Kaji, George Kerr, Hideo Kishimoto, William H. McCullough, and John L. Mothershead, Jr. Records pre-dating the Center occur in Goheen's correspondence and include George Kerr's prospectus for an Institute for American Studies in Japan, 1947, and his syllabus for a Japanese literature class, 1936. The photographs primarily document the first year of the program.
The Stanford Center for Japanese Studies in Tokyo was established in April 1961. The purpose was to provide undergraduate and graduate students from Stanford and other universities with the opportunity to pursue intensive study in Japanese and Asian affairs for a full calendar year. John D. Goheen was its founding director.
