  1. Legacies: The MacArthurs in the Far East

    June 1, 2020, 10:00 AM - February 1, 2021, 5:00 PM @ The MacArthur Memorial Visitors Center

    "The future and the very existence of the United States is tied up in Asia and its island outposts,” wrote Douglas MacArthur in 1963, citing a lesson from his father, Arthur MacArthur. Both men served in Asia during critical decades in its history, and helped shape events that have left a living legacy today. The Memorial will explore the impact of both men on Asia in its next special exhibit, Legacies: The MacArthurs in the Far East, which will open April 19, 2019, at 10 a.m. and will be on display through early 2021. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

  3. The Arrest of Tojo

    December 9, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ VIRTUAL

    Following the Japanese surrender to the Allies, ending World War II, occupation forces arrived in Japan with a “most wanted” list of people who would face trial for war crimes. General and former Premier of Japan, Hideki Tojo was at the top of that list. Tojo tried to kill himself as the arresting agents arrived at his door. It was one of the oddest incidents of the early days of the Allied Occupation of Japan. On December 9, 2020, at 7:00pm join us for a virtual presentation as veteran Associated Press journalist, Chris Carola, presents the story of the men and the incidents of that chaotic day in 1945. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
