Caption on reverse [translation]: "American Youth Gorham Graduates From Tokyo Imperial University. Received Education in Japan from Elementary School. Returns to Birthplace of America on Yawata Maru. [Tokyo 1st Domei]. An American youth named Dan C. Gorham (25) was among the two thousand who had their graduation ceremony for Tokyo Imperial University on the 31st and received their diplomas. The eldest son of Director William R. Gorham of Kokusai Seiki, he was brought to Japan as a mere 8 month old child 24 years ago. He entered Tokyo Imperial University majoring in literature after graduating from an elementary school in Kokura, Kyushu and attending Seijo Middle School and High School in Tokyo. He stands out among those fortunate graduates as first American to graduate from Japan's highest school. Although he will return to his homeland of America on the NYK Yawata Maru departing Yokohama on April 10, he said that he wishes to become a diplomat after returning. [Stamped] April 1, 1941."
