THE INTIMATE PERSONAL STORY OF AN AMERICAN WOMAN'S FOUR REMARKABLE YEARS AS PRIVATE TUTOR TO THE CROWN PRINCE OF JAPAN. A fascinating inside account of the formative years of Akihito, the reigning Emperor of Japan, written by his trusted America tutor, the late Elizabeth Gray Vining. During the United States Occupation of Japan after WW2, the director of the United States Education advisory mission to Japan recommended Mrs. Vining to open windows onto a wider world for the Crown Prince? Mrs. Vining was born into an old Quaker family in Philadelphia in 1902. In 1946, Japanese Emperor Hirohito selected Mrs. Vining to be a tutor for the Crown Prince, the future Emperor Akihito, a position she held for 4 years. She was eventually to be a tutor to the Imperial Family, including Empress Nagako. After returning to the United States, Mrs. Vining maintained a close, lifelong relationship with the imperial family. InvCode zu75 ViewFair Books : Size: 5 ½ x 8 ½. Bookseller Inventory # 001266
