Kalamazoo's Japanese Connection, 1900-1910
Strauss, David, 1937-
This article presents information on five students from Japan during the first decade of the twentieth century. Three of these students were children of American missionaries: Ora Scott, Stella Fisher, and Royal Fisher. The other two students were Japanese: Nagai Sokichi and Katsuji Kato. Sokichi spent one year at the college and later became a well-known novelist, publishing under the name Nagai Kafu. Kato graduated with the Class of 1909 and would go on to work for the YMCA.
