Jolyon Ford
Transparency does not necessarily yield accountability, nor trigger internal behavioural changes in business.

One Hundred Years of the Morrison Collection at the Tōyō Bunko (Oriental Library): Library, Museum, and Research

HAMASHITA Takeshi
In October 1917, the collection of the Asiatic Library in Beijing, founded by G. E. Morrison, arrived in Tokyo. In the collection, there were books, manuscripts, various pamphlets, and other materials covering the whole of Asia, with China as its main focus. In total, there were more than 20,000 volumes. In this lecture, Professor Hamashita will introduce the Morrison collection in the Tōyō Bunko using examples from its research projects, exhibitions, and digitisation program to further the mutual understanding of G. E. Morrison and his family’s history.
