Professor Steven Vogel, Chancellor Robert Birgeneau, Professor Mark Blum, and Reverend Masaharu Kono at a dinner celebrating Prof. Blum's appointment as the second Shinjo Ito Distinguished Chair in Japanese Studies, December 10, 2013
Masako Takahashi, daughter of Tomoye Takahashi, speaks at a luncheon honoring her mother and her generous endowment toward the Tomoye Takahashi Endowed Chair in Japanese Studies, March 24, 2018.
Many key individuals and organizations made important financial contributions to the Center over the years. We are fortunate to benefit from endowments received from the Shinnyo-en Foundation, Mrs. Tomoye Takahashi and her sister the late Mrs. Martha Suzuki, and the Japan Foundation, which first established a fund on our behalf in 1973. We are deeply grateful; their generosity allows us to offer diverse and rich programs, and to support the work of our students and faculty. Please help us by thanking them if you get a chance.
