I was remiss in posting that lovely snapshot of the ship model given to the School of Dentistry by its sister school, the Hokkaido University School of Dentistry. Today Ian showed me this lovely image of former Portland Mayor Terry Schrunk with what one could only presume were representatives from Hokkaido University, sometime between 1973 and 1975.
Although on the back of the photograph is penciled "ca. 1975," Mayor Schrunk's term of office ended in 1973, and the Agreement for Sister School Affiliation was effective January 1, 1974.
We have many other interesting artifacts from this continued relationship with the dental school's sister. Wall hangings, sculpture, and more.
