Brad Richardson Memorial Fund:
To build on Brad Richardson’s contribution to the Ohio State, the State of Ohio and the community of Japan-related scholars and professionals, the Ohio State Institute for Japanese Studies (IJS) has created the Brad Richardson Memorial Fund and seeks to grow it to the endowment level. Brad Richardson was a Distinguished University Professor in Political Science, the IJS founding Director, and a former Honorary Consul General of Japan for Ohio. Brad passed away in 2015. The Memorial Fund will be used to propel us vigorously towards the same goals that Brad promoted. Namely, the funds will support academic and outreach activities that promote Japanese Studies on campus and that enhance the interest, knowledge and discourse on Japan-related topics in the academic communities and general public. Until the contributions to the fund reach the endowment level, the fund shall function as a current-use fund.
