Unidentified group planting tree at grave of Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge during tribute by Yōsuke Matsuoka

Photograph showing a group of unidentified people planting a Japanese cherry tree near the grave of Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge at Lone Fir Cemetery in Portland on Sunday, April 9, 1933. The tree was planted at Beveridge’s grave during a tribute by Japanese diplomat Yōsuke Matsuoka, who had lived with Beveridge in Portland during his youth. He also placed a granite marker at the gravesite. Matsuoka, leader of the Japanese delegation to the League of Nations, visited Portland briefly in April 1933 on his way back to Japan following his delegation’s withdrawal from the league in February 1933. A related photograph, image No. 371N0218, and a story about Matsuoka’s tribute to Beveridge were published on Page 16 of the Oregon Journal on Monday, April 10, 1933. The story, headlined “Nippon Leader Pays Honor to Benefactress,” reported that Matsuoka first arrived in Portland in 1893 at age 13 and was living in a Methodist Church dormitory when he met Beveridge, who took him into her home.
