Joseph Hardy Neesima and Doshisha University

We wish to thank Rev. Yukimasa Ohmae for his generous donation of Japanese books that tell the story of Joseph Hardy Neesima and Doshisha University. With the assistance of a Simmons College GSLIS student volunteer, Youngmi Jeong, these books have now been cataloged. Youngmi has also created a special section in our Pratt Room to house these and several other Japanese books donated to us in the past. We hope that this will be of special interest to Japanese scholars and visitors to the library. Please search for these books in our online catalog.

Here is Youngmi with the collection:
