Title: Harry and Dora Maxwell
Posted by: Jonathan Devitt
Date: 25 April 2014

Would someone happen to possess any information about Harry Maxwell (1877-1944; born in Millerstown, Pennsylvania; father: Henry Maxwell who was born in New York City) who moved to Japan in 1899, where he married a Japanese woman called Masu Yamazaki? Harry owned Maxwell and Company, Ltd. (earlier: Hansen & Maxwell, Ltd.) and Maxwell Insurance Office in Kobe, Japan; as well as Maxwell Manufacturing Company, Inc. in Shanghai.

I am also trying to find out more about their daughter, Dora Maxwell who was born in 1902 in Yokohama, Japan; she also studied at Lasell College in Massachusetts between 1916-19.

Thank you very much in advance!
