Professor Otis Cary (III), ca. 1950

Description

Otis Cary was a third-generation missionary born in Hokkaido, Japan to Ellen and Otis Cary Jr.. He spent his early years there before the family returned to the United States. After attending Amherst College and Yale University, Cary joined the U.S. Navy. Due to his fluency in Japanese, he was stationed in Hawaii during World War II and placed in charge of a prison camp for Japanese P.O.W.s.

Cary returned to Japan in 1947 where he became a professor of history at Doshisha University in Kyoto, helped to improve U.S.-Japan relations, and lent encouragement during the post-war rebuilding process. He retired in 1992, and moved to Oakland, California in 1996 where he lived until his death in 2006.
