TR Roosevelt and Tadasu Hayashi
posted by Shaina on .
Can any one tell me the relations between TR Roosevelt and Tadasu Hayashi? Were there any tensions between these too?
I have been Googling for hours and I can not seem to find connections between the two.
Theodore Roosevelt was the prime mover in bringing Russia and Japan to the negotiating table at the end of the Russo Japanese war and he was, later, awarded a Nobel peace prize for his efforts. He would, almost certainly, have been in touch, or met, with Hayashi Tadusu who was the Japanese ambassador in Britain at the same time as many other countries were represented at the peace conference (America, Germany et al). Other than that there seems to be no direct link between TR and HT. I have not seen him mentioned in "The Letters of TR" published by Harvard University Press in 1951. See also Wikipedia for books relating to HT.
Best of luck with your studies.
