Students Outside of the First Classroom Building of Ibaraki Christian College Taking Photographs, Ibaraki, Japan, ca.1948-1952
"Virgil Lawyer believes in Co-education" The photograph shows students, both men and women, together on campus. This is significant because up to this time in Japanese education, the sexes were segregated. Ibaraki Christian Schools was one of the first education institutions in Japan to offer a co-educational experience. This photo is part of a photo album given as a gift to E. W. McMillan upon his departure as president from Ibaraki Christian College.
