"Hope and Japan: Early Ties"
written by Dr. Sobania '68

-- Excerpt from the article --    

When speaking to groups about international education at Hope, I often remark that one-third of the graduating class of 1879 was Japanese, including the valedictorian, who gave the graduation address in both Latin and Japanese.  The statement never sounds as convincing if I say that the Class of 1879 consisted of only six graduates, and two were Japanese, but in reality, for that time period, this is indeed very significant.
