International Houses Worldwide Event: I-House Day Tokyo

Lecture Series

Sunday, January 13, 2019

2:00PM - 5:00PM

International House of Japan 11-16 Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo 106-0032, Japan

This is a joint event with I-House Chicago and is open to alumni of all Houses in the International Houses World Wide group.

We will be joined by Denise Jorgens, President of I-House Chicago and Dr. Anil K. Trivedi ’79 of both the NYC and Chicago I-Houses. We will also be joined by Alice Lewthwaite, the great-granddaughter of Harry Edmonds. Harry Edmonds, with the support of Mr. Dodge and Mr. Rockefeller, founded the House in New York and then went on to found the Houses at Berkeley and Chicago. Alice is re-creating Harry Edmonds’ final world tour that he did in 1966 at the age of 83. Following Harry’s itinerary as closely as possible between the 1st of January and the middle of March, Alice will be visiting 18 countries doing 25 stops. Her goal is to meet with alumni in each location and pass the light on, as Harry did, of tolerance, understanding and international friendship.

Meeting at International House of Japan will be particularly relevant as whilst the House in Japan was founded in the 1950s by the Rockefellers, Japanese residents have played a prominent part in the I-House history in NYC, Berkeley and Chicago.

We are extremely grateful to Denise Jorgens, President of International House Chicago and Dr. Anil K. Trivedi ’79 for hosting this event.

A special thanks to the I-House Day organizer Mami Urano. We are so grateful for all her energy in supporting I-House alumni events.


Please RSVP here by Friday, January 4.
