Dear Hyung Il,

As I imagine you are aware, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston has a collection of Lowell’s photos and perhaps documents. Jane Portal was in charge but has left for the British Museum, but it should be easy to find someone there to help.

Dear Koreanists,

I am working on a paper on Percival Lowell and his travel photographs, In his widely read travelogue ( Land of the Morning Calm during the Winter of 1882-83, he brags that he was amongst 9 Westerners residing in Seoul at the time
He mentions Lucius Foote, and Von Moellendorf ( not including his Japanese wife and two kids),
Is this true? Who would the 7 others be? Can we confirm who they are. This time period early 1880s in Korean history is a new area for me .
