  Hokusei Jo Gakko-related Matters in the Minutes of the Meetings of the Japan Mission of the Presbyterian Church in the USA, 1922-1931
■ 概要
  From the year Sarah C. Smith officially retired as a missionary in 1922 through her return to the U.S. in 1931, the sponsoring organization of Hokusei Gakuen’s founder held regular business meetings at which matters pertinent to the school were decided. The minutes of the Annual Meeting of the Japan Mission of the Board of Foreign Missions of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America reveal the Mission’s priorities, processes, programs, and personalities, each of which significantly influenced Hokusei’s development. Key occurrences during this period include (a) the school’s response to the Great Kanto Earthquake, (b) the relocation and expansion of the Hokusei campus, (c) the struggle in paying for this improvement in severe financial conditions, and (d) the movement toward the school’s independence from the Mission financially and organizationally. This article presents (a) an overview of how these records reflect their historical and organizational contexts, (b) year-by-year summaries of their contents, and (c) analysis and discussion of them.
