Yōsuke Matsuoka after arrival at Union Station, Portland?

Photograph showing Yōsuke Matsuoka standing next to a train car on Friday, April 7, 1933, probably at Union Station after his arrival in Portland. Matsuoka, who had led the Japanese delegation to the League of Nations, was on his way back to Japan from Geneva following his delegation’s withdrawal from the league in February 1933. A related image, No. 371N1641, and a story about his arrival were published on Page 1 of the Oregon Journal on April 7, 1933. The story, headlined “Matsuoka Comes Back As Diplomat,” reported that in his youth, Matsuoka had lived in Portland twice; he first arrived in 1893 and later attended the University of Oregon Law School. Also see image Nos. 371N0218, 371N0219, 371N0220, 371N0221, and 371N3037, taken later in Matsuoka’s visit to Portland.

Yōsuke Matsuoka laying flowers at grave of Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge

Photograph showing Japanese diplomat Yōsuke Matsuoka laying flowers at the grave of Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge at Lone Fir Cemetery in Portland on Sunday, April 9, 1933. The grave marker reads: “Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge / Born 1843 / Died Oct. 5, 1906 / Born in Scotland.” Matsuoka, who had lived with Beveridge in Portland during his youth, provided the granite marker shown in this photograph and placed it at Beveridge's grave site during a brief visit in April 1933. Matsuoka, leader of the Japanese delegation to the League of Nations, stopped in Portland on his way back to Japan after his delegation’s withdrawal from the league in February 1933. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 16 of the Oregon Journal on Monday, April 10, 1933, under the headline “Honors Friend’s Memory.” The photograph had the following caption: “Yosuke Matsuoka, chief of the Japanese delegation to the League of Nations and Portland visitor, places wreath on the grave of Mrs. Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge, his benefactress when he came to Portland as a poor boy of 13. He previously had unveiled a grave marker.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Nippon Leader Pays Honor to Benefactress.” The story 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.

“Innocent Fun or Social Shame?”

The Urban League of Portland provided this explanation against staging minstrel shows and blackface in schools. It was published in the Oregon Education Journal, c.1950. Edwin “Bill” Berry, who would later become the Executive Director of the Chicago Urban League, included a note addressing the teachers and principals who were “deeply hurt when the matter is discussed with them.” The goal of the essay, Berry wrote, was to educate as many teachers as possible so that the League’s “efforts will be preventative rather than remedial.”
