- Sir Edward Crowe (1877-1960): Forgotten Star of the Japan Consular Service
- John Carey Hall (1864-1926): A Career in Japan and the Japan Consular Service
- John Frederick Lowder (1843-1902): Consul, Counsel and o-yatoi
Sir Edward Crowe was appointed as commercial attache in Tokyo in response to new challenges caused by international trade competition. Despite being very successful during his time in the Department of Overseas Trade, Crowe received very little recognition for his contributions, and is remembered in this chapter as “the forgotten star of the Japan consular service.”
Chapter 22 is about John Hall who had one of the most extensive careers with the Japan Consular Service, eventually reaching the rank of Consul General.
John Lowder (1843-1902) briefly served as consul in Japan. He was famously pro-Japan and one of its most notable foreign lawyers.
