77. Editorial Note

Ambassador Reischauer submitted his resignation in April and left Japan on August 19, 1966, to resume his academic career at Harvard University. He explains his reasons for leaving in My Life Between Japan and America, pages 295–297 and 301.

Shortly before his departure from Tokyo, Ambassador Reischauer wrote a lengthy critique of U.S. policy toward the People’s Republic of China and its effects on United States-Japan relations. That document, telegram 1126 from Tokyo, August 11, is printed in Foreign Relations, 1964–1968, volume XXX, Document 174.
