Book looks new. Inscribed and signed by author in both English and Japanese. Paul Frederick Rusch (1897 – 1979) was a lay missionary of the Anglican Church in Japan. Rusch first arrived in Japan in 1925, initially to help the YMCA with reconstruction efforts after the Great Kanto earthquake,[1] and stayed to dedicate his life and energies towards youth education, post-war reconciliation and rural development in that country. Through his association with the Anglican Church in Japan he taught both Economics at Rikkyo University and was instrumental in helping Dr. Rudolf Teusler raise funds for the expansion of St. Luke's International Hospital in central Tokyo. Rusch is most widely known for his work in founding the rural Camp Seisen Ryo (??? Seisen Ryo) at Kiyosato, on the slopes of Mt. Yatsugatake, Yamanashi Prefecture. The camp and farm, first opened in July 1938, served as an Anglican youth mission center prior to the Second World War and was rededicated in 1946 as the Kiyosato Educational Experiment Project (KEEP).
