Doshisha Elementary School Visitors

Yesterday we had a visitors from Kyoto, Japan. The Vice Principal of the Doshisha Elementary School, Hiroyuki Okuno, and Arisa Furimoto, the teacher in the "Hardy" classroom are in Boston to arrange their students' exchange visit next year to Boston as sister cities. They were delight to see the bust of Alpheus Hardy and our collection of Neesima and Doshisha University books displayed in the Pratt Room. They added to our collection a Doshisha Elementary School flag, a map of Kyoto detailing the schools, and a guide book to the Doshisha schools. They were pleased to see that we are telling the story of Neesima to our visitors here in Boston.
