About this same time, another teacher, Professor Harold Wright, came to Antioch. Harold also had a long history with Japan, dating back to his days as a soldier there during the Korean War where he fell in love with Japanese culture. After the war he became a scholar of Japanese literature, and did graduate research under renowned Professor Donald Keene at Columbia University. He translated several books of Japanese poetry as well as composing original poetry himself.

HAROLD WRIGHT
Harold Wright has been poking around trash piles and treasure troves of Japanese literature and culture for over half a century. He discovered Japanese poetry while working as a construction inspector in Yamaguchi Prefecture in 1952. After that initial adventure in Japan, his life has revolved around bookstores, libraries, and universities in Hawaii, New York, Tokyo, Kyoto, and eventually back in Ohio, where he taught at Antioch college until his retirement in 2005. In 1986 he received a National Endowment for the Arts Grant to translate a second book of the renowned poet Tanikawa Shuntaro. Living and writing in Kyoto for two years, Harold discovered the campus of Kyoto Seika University and helped start up the Antioch Education Abroad exchange program in Japan, with KSU as their unique "sister college. He also discovered while living in Kyoto, not only Kyoto Journal but also the famed Kyoto Connection, where he was a regular performer of poetry and "trashy" plays like Ogata Gomi. Currently Harold and his wife, Jonatha, are active as professional storytellers. Performances and publications are listed on their website: www.jonathaandharold.com. One of the delights of Harold's life, however, has been those times he walked the streets of Kyoto, after all these years, only to be stopped by someone saying, "Hey, you're the Big Trash guy!

Harold Wright first came to Antioch in 1973 as an adjunct from the Ohio State University where he had been teaching Japanese Language and Literature. With grants from the Japan Foundation and Great Lakes College Association, he was eventually able to create a Japan program here at Antioch College where he taught various courses in language, literature, and even Japanese art history until he retired in 2005. It was in 1975 he offered his first class in "Japanese Environment and Aesthetics" which resulted in students constructing the original Tea House. Harold's own education in Japanese studies was gained primarily from his work as an undergraduate and for his master's degree at the University of Hawaii, as a Ford Foundation Fellow at Columbia University, and as a Fulbright scholar at Keio University in Tokyo. His extensive publications include numerous translations of both modern and classical Japanese poetry. He and wife Jonatha traveled to Japan for over a decade with the Antioch Education Abroad Program in Kyoto, gathering stories from books and the people they met. Harold translated these stories, and they adapted them for oral telling.
