Naibu Kanda Naibu Kanda
JPCDV30. Naibu Kanda (1857-1923). Signed bottom recto. Here is information on this Japanese man who attended Amherst college. Kanda Naibu (Class of 1879), aided by the new Japanese government, arrived in Amherst in 1871, at the tender age of fourteen. Seelye arranged for him to stay with an Amherst family and attend the local high school until he entered the College. Like Niijima, Kanda embraced Christianity and devoted his life to the new education in Japan. He became Japan’s preeminent authority on English and Latin and president of Japan’s English Speaking Society. He helped to make the study of English an essential part of Japan’s national education. After succeeding his father as Baron Kanda in 1910, he served in the House of Peers and as a delegate to numerous international conferences. During the Washington Conference in 1921, his alma mater invited him back to Amherst and awarded him an honorary degree. One of Kanda’s sons would hold the first chair in American civilization at Tokyo Imperial University. VG. $250
