Introduction

Scope and Contents

The collection includes subject files, correspondence, scrapbooks, articles, lectures, notes, drafts of works by Williams, drafts of works by others, photographs, programs and other papers relating to the history of foreign settlement in Japan and its influence on, and adaptation to, Japanese society. The papers also relate to Japanese culture, individual expatriate residents, other foreigners, foreign businesses, communities and clubs in Japan until the 1980s. These papers contain the primary material used by Williams in his many published books and articles.

Also included are the papers of Gertrude Williams and personal and family papers that document Harold Williams' life and the life of both Harold and Gertrude Williams in Japan.

Provenance

Harold and Gertrude (Jean) Williams between 1978 and 1995 donated the collection to the Library in numerous instalments. Further material was added in 2002 and 2005.

In addition to the papers and manuscripts held in the Manuscript Collection, the Asian Studies Collection of the National Library holds the Harold S. Williams Collection of monographs and a number of pictorial works.

The Harold S. Williams Collection of monographs contains over 3,000 volumes; its particular strength is the history of foreigners and foreign settlements in Japan. It includes directories, travel books and works on Japanese foreign relations, foreign business houses, missions, foreign clubs and societies, customs, fine arts, festivals, natural disasters, the army, politics, economic conditions, local history, laws, education and many other themes. It also contains books on other parts of East Asia, including China, Hong Kong and Korea. In most cases in which Williams included both monographs and manuscripts in the same folders the monographs have been removed. Such items have then been added to the monograph collection.

The Williams Collection also contains 16 framed etchings by the Japanese artist Hiroshi Kambara, an album of his original sketches and watercolours and a published collection of his works. Kambara's pictures are of both artistic and historical interest and thus complement the books and manuscripts of the Williams Collection.

Biographical Note

Harold Stannett Williams was born in Melbourne in 1898 and died in Kobe in 1987. Williams went to Japan for a visit in 1919. He decided to stay and, except during World War II when he served in the Australian Army, he lived there until his death. After the War he was a member of the Occupation Forces in Japan; on his return to civilian life in 1949, he renewed his business interests and, with his wife Gertrude, began his research into the history and culture of the foreign settlements. He was the author of numerous books on Japan including Tales of Foreign Settlements in Japan (1958) and Foreigners in Mikadoland (1963). A list of his published books can be found in Appendix 1. (Under related documents tab)

For about thirteen years Williams contributed articles to the Mainichi Daily News in the series, 'Shades of the Past'; he was also a frequent contributor to other English language newspapers, both in Japan and other countries.

In 1967 he was awarded the International Cultural Award of the Hyogo Prefectural Government. In 1972 he was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to historical research.

Gertrude F. (Jean) Williams shared her husband's interests and contributed to the development of his collection. Together they travelled extensively throughout Japan and overseas, visiting libraries and other institutions, undertaking research and copying from English language newspapers. After his death she published a two-volume collection of their writings entitled West Meets East: The Foreign Experience of Japan (1992). She died in Queensland in 1999.

Papers concerning the property of E.W. James in Japan, assembled by H.S. Williams when he was James' trustee (File 66) - Box 80 (MS 6681)

On cover of file: 'This file has been preserved for historical reasons as a fair example of the many claims for compensation which the Japanese began to formulate when they had had time to measure up the possibilities under the benevolent occupation'. It actually covers the claims made by fishermen of the Shioya area about the damage to their livelihood caused by a move of the water intake for the Shioya Country Club swimming pool.

Series 5. Photographs

This first consignment of material in this series contains 36 photograph albums: Albums numbers 1-24, 29-30, and 33-42, as numbered by Harold Williams. The original album number is shown on the list with the prefix HSW, followed by the numbers of the photographs in that album.

Material was added to this series in September 2005: 11 albums and a photograph. Originally numbered by donor, they are now numbered chronologically as much as possible. The number in brackets after the date is the one which appears on the spine. Items in this addition to Series 5 are identified by Vol/Piece Folder numbers only, and Folio numbers have been discontinued.

There are no albums, 25 - 28, or 31 - 32, in the Collection.

Albums numbers 1-20, 22-24, 29-30, and 33-42 have been microfilmed and are on microfiche at McG 4244/1-202. A separate listing is attached (see the Related Documentation tab). There is an index to Album 21 but no record of it having been microfilmed.

An index to the photograph albums is in Series 11/3, Indexes to Photographs. Each album has a list of photographs inside the front cover. Some albums have subject indexes to individual photographs. The photographs include original photographs, photographs of press cuttings and photographs of paintings and drawings. There are a few original wood engravings.

The rest of the series contains individual photographs, stereoscopic and aerial views, duplicate photographs and negatives of photographs in the albums and of other material in the collection.
