“Let the Work Go On”
This section traces the fight against tuberculosis and the role of foreign evangelists through the late Taishō and early Shōwa periods to the Pacific War and its aftermath. The scourge of tuberculosis was ultimately conquered during the Occupation of Japan by General Douglas Macarthur’s SCAP forces, with the help of some of the evangelists, both domestic and foreign-born, who were able to remain throughout the war years.
