紀要論文 英国人鉄道技師の叙勲
The British Railway Engineers Decorated by the Japanese Government in the Meiji Era

林田, 治男

内容記述
At the beginning of Meiji Era, more than 200 foreigners came to Japan( as so called" Oyatoi", hired foreigner) in order to build the railways. Almost all of them were the subjects of the United Kingdom. In this paper I define an "Engineer" as any person who was a "Member" (including those registered as an Associate Member, or a Student Member) of the Instituion of Civil Engineers and/or the Instituion of Mechanical Engineers. 24 Engineers were engaged in the Imperial Railways of Japan, and because of their excellent contributions the Japanese Government decorated 6 of them. I intend to describe how and whom the Government selected, by tracing their careers and accomplishments in Japan. Both William Pole and William Walter Cargill were decorated. Pole, the Consulting Engineer in Britain, never visited Japan, and Cargill, the Director, was not a member of either one of the Institutions mentioned above. The examining the reasons for rewarding these two will help to clarify the Japanese Government's criterion for selecting the awardees.
