Scope and content

Photograph showing Japanese diplomat Yōsuke Matsuoka laying flowers at the grave of Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge at Lone Fir Cemetery in Portland on Sunday, April 9, 1933. The grave marker reads: “Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge / Born 1843 / Died Oct. 5, 1906 / Born in Scotland.” Matsuoka, who had lived with Beveridge in Portland during his youth, provided the granite marker shown in this photograph and placed it at Beveridge's grave site during a brief visit in April 1933. Matsuoka, leader of the Japanese delegation to the League of Nations, stopped in Portland on his way back to Japan after his delegation’s withdrawal from the league in February 1933. A cropped version of this photograph was published on Page 16 of the Oregon Journal on Monday, April 10, 1933, under the headline “Honors Friend’s Memory.” The photograph had the following caption: “Yosuke Matsuoka, chief of the Japanese delegation to the League of Nations and Portland visitor, places wreath on the grave of Mrs. Isabelle Dunbar Beveridge, his benefactress when he came to Portland as a poor boy of 13. He previously had unveiled a grave marker.” The photograph accompanied a story headlined “Nippon Leader Pays Honor to Benefactress.” The story reported that Matsuoka first arrived in Portland in 1893, at age 13, and was living in a Methodist Church dormitory when he met Beveridge, who took him into her home.
