for the future relationship between Japan and U.S, and since then, this
Participants : 79 (including members 18) guests:6y organizaton.
His speech has 8 parts.
1. Early 20th century and my grandfather’s desire for better relations between the United States and Japan.---Mr. Gulick had to come back to US after more than twenty years stay in Japan as missionary.
2. Preparation for the doll mission from the United States to Japan in 1926
3. Arrival of the dolls of friendship in Japan
4. The return doll mission that sent ambassador dolls from Japan to the United States in
1927. In a farewell ceremony , Japanese Ambassador to the United states,Mr. Matsudaira
said the aim of the doll ambassador was to fulfill ‘ the important task of
building hearts of
our children to those of yours by the silken cord of peace and love. He played an
important role in this project.
5.What happened during the next few decades---During war many dolls of friendship in both
Japan and US were lost because they were hidden or forgotten or destroyed.
In 1974 the history of a special Doll Messenger, Mary was broadcast by the television
network NHK. After that little by little original dolls were found.
6.Modern doll missions that are “descendants” of the original doll missions. In 1986 the
Yokohama Doll Museum opened its door.
7.My father’s feelings about the Japanese
His father was a professor of English at San Diego State college and he wa the person
who spoke out nationally for freedom of speech when s by certain government officials
to limit freedom of speech.
His father served as preside of Yokohama-San Diego sister City. His father was
invited at the opening ceremony of Doll Museum. But at that time he was too old and too
sick to go to Yokohama. Instead of him, his son , Sidney Gulick attended it. It was
the new beginning of new friendship doll mission.
8.Conclusion
He believes what his grandfather said nearly 100 years ago is true today:
“The achievement of world peace depends on many factors, economic, political,
educational, moral, spiritual. To ensure it for the next generation means a steady
building of understanding and goodwill among the children of today.”

The ceremony of presenting new friendship doll was held.
He presented a new friendship doll,, Mary Sue who would go to Miyagaya elementary school. As a little ambassador for everyone at the school.

Miyagaya elementary school has dolls, called Taro and Hanako.
Profile of Dolls (Taro and Hanako)
In 1927 A blue eye friendship doll was presented to this school.
At that time she was lonely so Hanako became her friend. After World War II broke out, the original doll was removed. Instead of her, Taro was made. For a while after the war two dolls were displayed together. But they became old and worn out, and they were left to a teacher’
care.
More recently a new school building was completed. So they came back to Miyagaya school,
received a new clothes, and can look splendid!
Q& A ----There are lots of questions, from doll mission to his hobby, playing cello .
