In 1918 Prof. M. Shirai published “On the Development of Plantpathology in Japan: A Brief Historical Sketch” in “Annals of the Phytopathological Society of Japan.” Vol. I, No. 1. He wrote chiefly on the historical facts in Tokyo and omitted those in Sapporo, the other centre of plant pathology in Japan, and he said Prof. K. Miyabe is well fitted for the purpose.
In the present article I tried to write a brief history of plant pathology in Sapporo on the material supplied by Prof. K. Miyabe, and added some other facts relating to plant pathology in Japan, which I know.
