In 1900 the Tokyo Dental College was established, making it the oldest dental school in Japan, with headquarters in Kanda. In 1929 a large new dental research institute was built in Suidobashi as part of the campus, a state-of-the-art complex that included lecture halls, operating theatres, and laboratories. 50 years later this building had become outdated and yet it was cherished by the authorities and the students. They choose Miyako Ishiuchi, who had been awarded the Kimura Ihei Award two years previously, to compile a record. She spent a year observing the student and teaching activities in the block and the resulting book is a beautiful homage to the spirit of the institution. This book is very uncommon and was presumably sold on the campus to Old Boys/Girls of the University. No copy in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/07)
