"Veteran's tribute"*WW2*"Pearl Harbor"*Washington DC"*Japanese diplomats*

A veteran's account of two hours in Washington DC on Sunday, December seventh, 1941, when, after receiving notice of the Japanese attack on the US Navy fleet anchorage at Pearl Harbor Hawaii, Secretary of State Hull broke off negotiations with Japanese Ambassador Kurusu and Special Envoy Nomura and showed them the door. Previously unpublished copyrighted photographs show the diplomats leaving the State Dep't and chatting with a knot of reporters outside; reporters as yet unaware that the United States and the Japanese Empire were already at war.

The White House
Sunday afternoon, 7 December 1941

Previously unavailable photographs of the Japanese envoys leaving the old State Department building, now the Executive Office Building, on Sunday afternoon, after Secretary of State Cordell Hull was given word that the U.S. fleet base at Pearl Harbor Hawaii had been bombed by aircraft of the Japanese Imperial Navy.

The illustrated booklet is dedicated to all those who have, are now, or will serve at the call of their country. It is a memento of a terrible day for the United States as seen from a chilly overcast Washington DC.
