Portfolios of Photographs & Journal Entries


These fourteen portfolios were arranged for the 2002 publication of J.W.Bennett's memoir Doing Photography and Social Research in the Allied Occupation of Japan, 1948-1951. Each portfolio has its own page, containing a thumbnail view of each photo with its caption. Clicking on the photo or the photo's title will open a much larger version of the photograph.

Supplemental Photos

In the following 3 pages, 60 photographs have been scanned that were not published by the Washington University project. Several photos are variants on photographs found in the main collection, but there are also numerous original photos.

Journal Entries

J.W.Bennett kept a journal and wrote many letters while he lived in Japan. Each journal entry extracted here refers to its associated portfolio of photographs.
