Toguri first came to the University of Toronto as a student, receiving his BASc in 1955, MASc in 1956 and PhD in 1958.Aftercompleting his PhD he held post-doctoral and research associate appointments in London and Norway and at the University of Chicago.From 1962 until hejoined the faculty at U of T in 1966, he was head of the chemistrysection of the Noranda Research Centre in Pointe Claire, Que.
After he returned to U of T, Toguri supervised numerous graduate students and visiting research associates and as a result his influence and leadership spread internationally with professionalexchange commitments in Chile, Norway, Japan, Australia and the U.S. As well, he served as chair of what was then the Department of Metallurgy and Materials Science from 1976 to 1981 and held the Senior INCO/NSERC Industrial Research Chair in Chemical ProcessMetallurgy from 1988 until his retirement in 1998.In 1995 he was inducted into the University of Toronto Engineering Alumni Hall of Distinction.

Since 1967 Toguri welcomed more than 36 post-doctoral fellows and visiting professors from Japan.
