G. R. Storry

G. R. Storry (1913-1982) was the most eminent Japanologist of his day with his History of Modern Japan being for decades the standard introduction to the subject. To quote from his D. N. B. entry, 'Storry's contacts with Japan were at many levels, from members of the imperial family to ordinary working people . . . his romantic conservatism made him sympathetic to many of the traditional elements of Japanese life . . . He was a true interpreter of the Japanese to the British and of the British to the Japanese.'
