Kinji IMANISHI (1902-1992) was an entomologist, ecologist, anthropologist, founder of Japanese primatology, and an accomplished mountaineer, who had great popularity as an explorer among the Japanese public and was twice honored by the Emperor of Japan. Although his published works are well known, the existence of approximately 8000 unpublished pages of his personal notes and papers dating from 1919-1980 is largely unknown and makes up the content of this archive.
