Hiroya Kawanabe (HK) was born in Kyoto on 10 May 1932. His father, Osamu Kawanabe, was a teacher of Japanese literature and also a Buddhist priest, who died in 1934 at an early age. His mother, Tsuya Fujii-Kawanabe, was a teacher of the tea cer- emony and of flower arrangement, and had given birth to him at age 38. He attended elementary school from 1938 to 1945, junior high school from 1945 to 1948, and Kyoto City's Ohki High School, from 1948 to 1951. In March 1945, military requisi- tion of the Kawanabe property, which was situated in downtown Kyoto, and the subsequent demolition of the family home necessitated the tearful and hasty removal of only a fraction of the family's be- longings in a cart (HK 490; numbers refer to the subsequent 'Lifetime list of publications by Hiroya Kawanabe'). He and his mother were able to save only a portion of his father's books; his passion for reading may be due to the influence of his father. Interestingly enough, during his junior high school and high school years, Kawanabe tried to improve the method used to catalogue the books in his school libraries, though he subsequently learned Figure 1.
