Conrad Totman Papers, 1800-2008 (Bulk: 1948-2005)
65 boxes (53 linear ft.)
Collection number: MS 447

Abstract:
A scholar of the history and culture of early modern Japan, Conrad Totman began his career as a student of ornamental horticulture at the University of Massachusetts. After graduation in 1953, Totman served in the army for three years in South Korea where got his first taste of Japanese culture during leave. His experiences in Japan piqued his scholarly interest, and upon his return to the states with his new wife Michiko, he finished college at UMass and did his graduate work at Harvard where he received a doctorate in 1964 for a study of politics during the Tokugawa period. Totman held academic positions at UC Santa Barbara, Northwestern, and Yale before retiring in 1997.

The bulk of the collection documents Professor Totman's education and professional work as a scholar and teacher of Japanese history. Dispersed throughout is a treasure trove of information on Japan in general, and particularly on his specialties: early modern Japan and forestry and environmental management. An enormous, highly influential, and cherished part of Totman's life is his family, and the Totman clan is well represented in this collection. Reams of genealogical material document the rich heritage of the Totman family, including the transcribed love letters and diaries of his paternal grandmother and biographies of Totman ancestors, as well as hundreds of letters written between Michiko and her family in Japan.

Biographical Note

Conrad Totman in his office at Santa Barbara.

On a wintry 5th of January, 1934, Conrad Davis Totman was born in an upstairs bedroom of the family farmhouse in Conway, Massachusetts. His father, Raymond Smith Totman, declared it too dangerous to drive his wife ten miles on unpaved, unplowed, and unreliable roads to the nearest hospital in Greenfield. Thus, the family doctor made the trek to the farm on that cold and snowy day and helped Mildred Kingsbury Totman deliver her second son. Conrad was preceded by his brother, Leland, in 1931, and followed by two sisters: Barbara in 1936, and Gail in 1937. The third generation of Totmans to work the farm known as "Broomshire" was complete.

As the children grew, so too did their responsibilities and chores around the farm. At various points in his childhood, Conrad was responsible for duties such as the care of chickens, herding the dairy cows and calves out to pasture, cleaning udders prior to milking, and assisting older farmhands with their work. Later, when Conrad became one of those older workers, he joined in tasks like mowing, drying and baling hay, cultivating and drying tobacco, tapping maple trees for sap, harvesting, processing and ensiling field corn for cattle feed, tending to honeybee "supers," felling trees for firewood and lumber, and minding the vegetable garden.

Academically, Conrad excelled. After finishing grammar school locally in Conway, he started High School at Arms Academy in nearby Shelburne Falls. In 1952, Totman graduated from Arms second in his class. He enrolled in the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in the fall as an Ornamental Horticulture major. Totman's interest in gardening made horticulture a logical choice, but study at the university was not as exciting as he thought. He was enrolled in the Army's Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) at UMass, and the Army seemed like a good place to sort out his future. So, after a year in Amherst, Totman fulfilled his enlistment on a three year stint. The decision to enlist in the Army proved to be the choice that changed his life.

After training to become a sanitary technician at camps in Virginia and Texas, Totman shipped out to Korea in 1953. The war had officially ended about ten months before, and South Korea was in the process of reconstruction. Totman was assigned to the 78th Preventive Medicine Control Detachment (PMCD). The unit was responsible for maintaining sanitary conditions both in the Army's camps and in the re-building villages of the countryside. Totman was a part of snap inspections of Army facilities such as mess halls and latrines. Another part of his job was to get samples from standing water to test for mosquito larvae. If enough larvae were present, then a sprayer would be hauled in to kill the potential disease-spreading mosquitoes, which also put any nearby humans at risk, though side-effects were largely unknown at the time.

During his stay in South Korea, Totman was an avid photographer, snapping pictures of everyday life both in and out of the military camp. He was able to document Seoul and Pyongyang, and on rest and recuperation (R&R) trips, he visited nearby Japan, a country he immediately loved. Totman took numerous photos and longed to return while stationed back in Korea. The break-up of the 78th PMCD lead to his reassignment to the 207th PMCD. Here, in a bonafide permanent hospital (as opposed to his previous temporary tent), his job was to identify mosquito larvae and to organize information about them. In February of 1955, Totman was given another reassignment, this time to the 10th Preventive Medicine Survey Detachment in Japan. Finally, he returned to the place he found most intriguing. Destiny also awaited him at the 10th PMSD in the form of the secretary to the commanding officer, Michiko Ikegami. They met for the first time on February 28, 1955, and have scarcely been apart since.

For almost a year and a half, Conrad and Michiko grew closer and spent increasing amounts of time together. In June 1956, when Totman's enlistment ran out, he was shipped back home. Soon after, Michiko quit her job and sailed on a cargo ship to San Diego. A plane carried her to Chicago, and another to Hartford, where Aunt Ruth waited to drive her to Amherst. There Michiko enrolled at UMass as a sociology major, and Conrad re-enrolled as a history major with plans to concentrate on Japan. They were married at the Totman family farm in Conway on January 28, 1958. Totman graduated in June--second in his class (again)--and was accepted into Harvard as a graduate student in history. Michiko finished her degree in June of 1959 at UMass Boston.

By 1960, Totman finished his Master's degree in East Asian Studies and in 1961 completed course requirements for a Ph.D. in East Asian History. Michiko, meanwhile, worked as a cataloguer in Harvard's East Asian Library. Conrad's research required an extended trip to Japan for his dissertation on politics during the Tokugawa period, so the couple made preparations to return. After a brief visit with the Ikegami family, they moved into their own house. Totman studied and wrote his thesis while Michiko worked, again cataloguing at a library, all the while speaking only in Japanese to aid Conrad. Their time was punctuated by sightseeing trips all around Japan and visits from Conrad's aunt Ruth and sister Gail. Two years later, in November of 1963, Totman completed his research and the family returned to America by way of an extended vacation; they visited Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, India, Egypt, Greece, and western Europe, and arrived in Conway in time for Christmas.

In June 1964, Totman received his doctorate and secured a teaching position at the University of California at Santa Barbara. The family rented half of a duplex for a short while, but the addition of Kathleen Junko Totman required a more permanent abode. They found a home in time to receive Christopher Ken Totman, and prepared to settle into California. Soon after, though, Totman was asked to take a position in the History Department at Northwestern University, which he accepted. During the summer of 1966, the family moved to Evanston, Illinois, where they stayed until the children completed their public schooling. Conrad taught and wrote extensively while Michiko worked in the Evanston public school system's Japanese-English bilingual program.

After eighteen years at Northwestern University, Conrad accepted a position at Yale University in the fall of 1984. Although Totman had made many friends and acquaintances during his stay in Illinois, the move to Yale made sense because it was conveniently close to his family and boyhood home in Conway, Massachusetts.

During his career, Toman worked on a wide variety of topics in early modern and modern Japan, ranging from the collpase of the Tokugawa Shogunate to forestry and the lumber industry in Japan, a topic reflecting his early years at an agricultural college. He taught courses of equal diversity, and upon retirement in 1997, was granted emeritus status. Conrad and Michiko Totman continue to live near New Haven.

The Conrad Totman Papers chronicle not only the life of Conrad Totman but also the lives of those who influenced him. The bulk of the collection documents Totman's education and profession as a scholar and teacher of Japanese history. Documents such as report cards, essays, and notes show his progression as a student, and tests, lecture notes, and evaluations show his progression as a college professor. Dispersed throughout is information on Japan in general and, in particular, on his specialties: early modern Japan and forestry and environmental management. Professional correspondence and other documents reveal a network of other highly educated Japan and Asian specialists, engaging in discourse aimed to support, challenge, and improve each other's scholarly output. An enormous, highly influential, and cherished, part of Totman's life is his family, and the Totman clan is well represented in this collection. Reams of genealogical material document the rich heritage of the Totman family, including the transcribed love letters and diaries of his paternal grandmother and alphabetized biographies of Totman ancestors, among many others. Illuminating the stories told in other parts of the collection, such as those in the large cache of highly descriptive personal letters to family members, are the many photographs spanning Totman's entire life and beyond.

This collection, on the one hand, documents Conrad Totman's life, liberties, and pursuits of happiness. On the other, it is a monument to his unceasing desire to inform others at the highest level possible. The final physical organization of this collection was made with every attempt to preserve the initial organization arranged by Totman himself. Save for a few shifts, the majority of the collection is still organized into subjects that Totman devised. He even included, in many instances, handwritten and typed notes further explaining connections and historical context for particular groupings. Personal characteristics are also apparent in the collection. Never one to waste, Totman's reprints and loose transcriptions of documents such as professional correspondence are usually printed on used paper. The loose transcriptions of messy or lost documents are indicated by the word "converted" written in the upper right-hand corner. Thus, conflicting information on the reverse of a document can always be nullified by examining the context of the surrounding group of documents. Also, while a large portion of this collection is about Japan, little of Totman's correspondence is in Japanese without any translation or explanation in English. However, the bulk of Michiko Ikegami Totman's letters are in Japanese, and the collection contains numerous items of Japanese significance: official papers, travel documents, receipts, notes, etc.

Series Descriptions
1948-1999


This series documents the majority of Totman's formal educational experiences. From his first year at high school to later scholarly research, Totman was constantly accumulating information. The materials relating to his high school, Arms Academy, show not only a general curriculum, familiar to almost any contemporary American high school student, but also the roots of Totman's future professional writing career. Examples of early writings include reports for English I through IV, U.S. History, and French; and notes for Biology, Chemistry and Plane Geometry classes. While his pursuit of a baccalaureate degree at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst started with a concentration in horticulture, it ended with a degree in history. The primary catalyst for this switch was a United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) course entitled "Survey of the Far East," taken while Totman served in the U.S. Army from 1953-1956. Two essays written during the 1956-1957 school year back at UMass show further development in his writing style, as well as a firm commitment to the study of history as a profession.

His scholarship further improved at Harvard University, as evidenced by two seminar papers in the collection as well as the culmination of his pre-professional education, his doctoral dissertation. Totman's research for his thesis led him to Shinkoganei, Japan. Materials from his first (Shinkoganei) and subsequent (Tanashi-shi, Kichijoji, and Mitaka-shi) scholarly research trips to Japan showcase the trials and tribulations of a professional scholar. Also included are documents relating to his decades-long research into forestry and the natural environment, as well as an extensive selection of sketched and pieced maps and Totman's research notecard collection.

1963-2008


The bulk of this series constitutes Totman's teaching career. Documents relating to his major teaching posts at the University of California at Santa Barbara, Northwestern University, and Yale University contain individual class lecture notes and test materials on topics in Japanese history. These are mostly organized by class number. Where the class number is inconsistent, the course title is used. Totman's guest teaching posts at the University of Chicago, the Kyoto Center for Japanese Studies, and Stanford University are organized in the same manner and offer further insight into his methods and topics.

In addition to teaching, Totman served his profession in an administrative role at the Association for Asian Studies (AAS), in addition to other professional groups. These materials, which include minutes of meetings, correspondence with other members, and collective proposals, show the scope and diversity of the scholars of Asian Studies, as well as indications of scholarly specialization. Guest lectures were another important part of Totman's career, and this series contains papers from his trips to deliver talks and participate on panels. Also included is a wealth of correspondence with Japan specialists, colleagues, and students.

1953-2007


A prolific writer born into a family of prolific writers, Totman seemingly never put down the pen. This series is comprised of a majority of Totman's written works, and is divided into published and unpublished sections. The bulk of the published works relate to Totman's influential monographs. This section explores virtually every stage of publishing a book from working drafts to evaluations by peers, correspondence with publishers, and even to royalty and sales statements. Other published works include Totman's reviews of academic books, encyclopedia entries, journal articles, book chapters, and newspaper articles.

The highlight of the unpublished section is the collection of letters, original and transcribed, the bulk of which were penned by Totman during his military service in Korea and Japan. The letters from Korea show a unique glimpse of reconstruction efforts, as Totman reached the peninsula less than a year after an armistice ended the Korean War. The letters from Japan are restricted until 2015, however, recollections of that time period can be found in the unpublished section as well, in a work entitled Kathy's Story - For Laurel, which summarizes the childhoods and lives of both Conrad and Michiko Totman and their family. Another work, dubbed Farm Life in Conway Mass. in the 1940s, explores aspects of Totman's childhood in further detail. Other unpublished works include essays, abandoned projects such as a fictionalized narrative of Japanese history, and unused fragments of his Ph.D. thesis. Early scholarly writings, such as term papers and reports, can be found in Series 1: Education.

1800-2007


This series contains genealogical materials relating to the Totmans and western Massachusetts. Conrad Totman's cousin Alice Totman Hawks researched and collected the bulk of the documents, which largely pertain to Totman family genealogy. In 1936, Alice created a family newsletter, eventually known as Tot-Kin. In each installment, Alice presented her family research along with substantial and diverse contributions from other members of the family from all over the United States. Tot-Kin featured letters written to Alice for publication, which kept the entire clan up to date. These letters, which initially served as current news, are now a rich historical record, documenting the Great Hurricane of 1938 and Lt. Clayton Totman's experiences with the U.S. Marines in Shanghai in 1937 during the Japanese invasion of China. Alice solicited childhood recollections from family members, including J. Monroe Totman, who in his own words describes many aspects of his life in Massachusetts and South Dakota from 1850 to 1945.

In addition to personal anecdotes, Totman clan members were encouraged to submit historic letters and transcriptions to share in Tot-Kin. Some of these letters include Rev. Harvey Totman's Diaries from 1833 to 1868, and Eli Totman's letters home from 1862 to 1863. Harvey was a traveling priest in New York State, and Eli was in the 25th Wisconsin Regiment and was witness to parts of the Dakota War (a.k.a. Sioux Uprising) of 1862 in Minnesota. Tot-Kin was discontinued in 1942, but was resurrected by Betty Jo (Totman) Jensen in 1971. These later issues, which have similar content, are also included in the collection. The remainder of the genealogical materials contain Alice Totman Hawks' notes, drafts, subject and alphabetical files. In addition, Conrad Totman's transcription of the letters and diaries of his paternal grandparents, his wife Michiko's letters to Totman family members, and Joshua Totman's Economics notebook from circa 1800, are also significant parts of this series.

1936-2000


This series contains a multitude of prints, slides, and negatives documenting the bulk of the life of Conrad Totman on film. The photographs are organized into four subseries by location: Korea (1954-1955), Japan (1954-1993), United States (1936-2000), and World Trip (1963). As with much of this collection, save for a few changes, the series was organized by Totman himself. All of the subseries-level, group-level, and item level descriptions are written by Totman. The Korea, Japan, and World Trip subseries are divided into groups reflecting individual rolls of film and are ordered chronologically. Each group number consists of a letter (K for Korea, J for Japan, etc.) followed by a number (54 for 1954, or 67-68 for 1967-1968, etc.) and sometimes followed by another letter signifying order within a timeframe (such as K54a, K54b, K54c, etc). The United States subseries is divided into two parts: groups reflecting spans of time (which follow the same numbering rules as above), and groups reflecting various subjects (which substitute the group number for the subject title, such as "Amherst" or "Conway"). Several of these United States photograph groups overlap intellectually.

All of the photographs in the collection are housed by format. The beginning and end of each group of prints is marked with a "Begin J81g" and "End J81g" tag with the corresponding photograph. The negatives are housed and marked in relatively the same way. Where negatives are available, individual photograph numbers refer to the corresponding manufacturer's number on their respective negatives. For example, the print J63k2 is the same picture as negative 2 in group J63k. However, this is not the case for United States negatives. The slides are housed, like the prints and negatives, in order of subseries, then group, but are marked with a single manila tag for each group (such as J69d). There are no slides for the World Trip subseries. When searching for a photograph, one should look for a print or slide first and then check negatives second.

1903-1954


Over the course of their lives, Michiko and Conrad Totman accumulated diverse items relating to Japan. Especially during their early visits to Japan, Michiko and Conrad collected bits and pieces of art. They also received some from the Ikegami family, including what are probably the most valuable items. The collection includes ephemera from their travels about Japan. There is a delightful collection of prints by Japanese children that Michiko acquired while working as a bilingual teacher in Evanston, Illinois. The largest body of art is nanga-style paintings by Oyama Shinzo. There also are works by other artists, mostly kakemono and shikishi, but one byobu. Then there are diverse other things, including a stash of kokeshi and other dolls and an intricate "Boy's Day" display of toy armor.

This series contains diplomas and documents relating to the Totman family, as well as undated pieces of Japanese artwork, jewelry, and artifacts that Conrad and Michiko Totman collected during their travels. Many of the items are of local, western Massachusetts interest.

1957-2004


Michiko Ikegami Totman arrived in America in 1956. She met Conrad while serving as secretary with the U.S. Army in Japan, and moved to Amherst, Massachusetts where she worked on an undergraduate degree in sociology before marrying Conrad in 1958. The bulk of the Michiko Totman Papers are an extensive Ikegami family correspondence between Japan and America, especially during the early years of Michiko's relocation. Michiko's mother, Hiroko Kazumi Ikegami, sent Michiko and Conrad hundreds of letters, written in Japanese, chronicling life back home until her death in 1988. Michiko's three sisters (Yasuko Ogawa, Kyoko Kikuchi, Kazuko Makita) also corresponded, as did classmates from primary school. Some letters concerning the resolution of her parents' estate in the late 1980s are restricted until 2015.

The collection also contains papers from Michiko's education and professional endeavors, including her work as an ESL specialist for the Evanstown public schools. In 1968, Michiko became a naturalized U.S. citizen in Chicago; letters of congratulations are included. Conrad and Michiko both prided themselves on organization and thrift; the collection of their financial materials provides an insight into their spending, saving, and planning. Later in life, Michiko persued her great love of traveling, usually with organized groups of friends. The collection includes travel itineraries, receipts, brochures, and travel diaries from her journeys. A reference chronology of Michiko's major life events, compiled by Michiko and Conrad, is included, as are some of their careful notes explaining components of the collection.

Slides 55D
1955 March 6 - April 10


Taken after Conrad D. Totman had been reassigned to Japan from Korea. Frames D-1 through D-17 all seem to have been taken on Sunday, March 6. Then there is a long gap until the remaining frames are used during April 3-10. In Ltr. #J55-4 (p. 18) dated 13 Mar., Conrad D. Totman mentions waiting for payday, when he can afford film to take pictures of cherry blossoms. So perhaps he stopped taking pictures to conserve film in his camera.

Slides F
1955 May 9


Dating based on Ltr. #J55-21, p. 52, dated 11 May]. The problem is this: the last roll of color film shot in Korea (#K55d) has slides numbered 1-17. Moreover, although the color and location of machine-stamped slide numbers tend to differ from series to series, those on the slide jackets for K55d #1-17 seem to match perfectly Japan Series F #18-23. By contrast, other possible combinations do not work. To add to the mystery, this series F continues in mid-flight into series G-1 to G-16. It seems highly unlikely that Conrad D. Totman had two cameras. Could he have removed and later re-inserted this roll of film?

During the summer of 1971 Michiko (Michiko Totman) and our two children, Kathy and Chris, went to Tokyo to visit family while I installed the house trailer in the "Promised Land," a corner of the Totman farm on Bardwells Ferry Road in Conway, Mass., which Dad gave me as a graduation present in 1964.

This small collection of unnumbered slides is, it appears, a set of duplicates of slides that Michiko Totman's brother-in-law Ogawa Yôichi took during a visit by Michiko Totman, her mother, and the children to Yôichi and Yasuko's home in Sendai (where Yôichi was working for Dendenkôsha at the time) during July, 1971.

1972 Sept.-Nov.


During the academic year '72-73 Conrad D. Totman and his family were in Tokyo, living in the Ogawa house (they were still in Sendai) in the corner of the Ikegami house property in Kichijôji. Conrad D. Totman spent the year pursuing research on Japan's 1860s political history. Michiko Totman was with family; the children went to ASIJ (the American School in Japan), which was located just east of Tamabochi, near International Christian University (International Christian University), and near where Conrad D. Totman and Michiko Totman lived during 1961-63.

I have found no letters for this period, so the reconstruction of chronology has been particularly difficult.

A large (36-exposure) roll of Sakura color film, developed in May 1973. The sequence seems to take up where 73a left off, with Conrad D. Totman heading away from Tôdai, through Hongô to the bookstores of Jinbôchô and on past the Imperial Palace and then via Chûô line back to Kichijôji, where he took snapshots of domestic life. Probably these two rolls reflect his realization that within a few weeks he'd be leaving Japan.

World trip photographs
1963 Nov.-Dec.


This large set of "World Trip" (WT) B&W negatives may be largely useless. Many frames are under or over-exposed. Because I have forgotten much of what the images capture, in many cases their identification is now (2005) difficult. Experts on particular areas may, however, find something of use here.

Such as they are, these images record the trip that Conrad D. Totman and Michiko Totman made when they returned to USA from two years in Japan while Conrad D. Totman did his thesis research. They traveled to Taiwan-Hongkong-Bangkok-India-Cairo (airport)-Greece-Italy-Northwest Europe-London (airport)-Boston, Mass., USA.

In India they went from Calcutta (by plane: Fokker "Friendship"?) to Vanarasi and (by train?) to Delhi, and then a terrifying auto ride to visit Taj Mahal (and Red Fort?). In Greece they visited Athens and Delphi (on Nov. 23 hearing from the waiter at breakfast in the hotel at Delphi of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. After some anguished soul-searching, they decided they need not rush home to save the Republic and instead continued on their travels)

In Rome they rented a Fiat, drove northward through Florence and on to Venice, then over the Alps to Innsbruck, on to the Munich area and a visit to Schwangau and on down the Rhine, headed for France. Our first effort to leave Germany failed, when we came to the end of the road and found ourselves facing an elaborate tank barrier, whether residue of WW II or anticipation of WW III. Finally, we were able to cross the corner of Belgium (or Luxemburg?), then southward through western France to Nice(?) to return the rented car. Then a flight from Marseille to Paris, and thence via London airport on to Boston on Dec. 18.

They were met at Logan Airport by Conrad D. Totman's sister Gail, who was working for IBM in Boston at the time. She drove them to the Conway farm for Christmas, and there they revived their VW beetle and drove down to Cambridge for the spring semester. At their Mass. Ave. rental Conrad D. Totman completed revisions of the PhD thesis, which Michiko Totman typed up. He had previously sent the first draft to his advisor, Albert Craig (who taught briefly at U. Mass. in ca. 57-59), just before departing Japan in November.

As in the above series, [a] denotes Negative and [b] denotes Print. In addition [Michiko Totman b] denotes a Print contained in the pertinent picture album tht Michiko Totman created. (Note, however, that in the albums Michiko Totman did not always identify the prints correctly)

Michiko Totman also kept a richly detailed, skillfully illustrated diary in Japanese of that trip (now with grammatical corrections inserted by her mother, who read it later), and information in it may correct or elaborate particulars of the above summary.

Slides US-56b
1956


This set of Kodachrome duplicates came from the camera of Richard Sturdevant, who had been a comrade of Conrad D. Totman in the 78th PMC in Korea and later dated Conrad D. Totman's sister Barbara for a while. They all were taken during a late-summer 1956 swimming session at Pelham Pond that involved Richard, Conrad D. Totman, his sisters Barbara and Gail and one or two other people. (there are copies of several of the images)

1. At water's edge; (standing l. to r.): Conrad D. Totman, Barbara Totman, Gail T., unidentified. Another unidentified person in left rear



2. Conrad D. Totman and Sturdevant at Pelham Pond

Slides US-56c
1956 Sept.-1957 Summer


This set of Kodachrome slides was probably put into Conrad D. Totman's camera after he completed 56a above. There seems to be considerable confusion in the dating that he used when identifying the slides. But they seem to cover the period from about Sep. '56 to summer '57.
