BC. Laurence Binyon: Secondary Materials

35. Times (London), 10 August 1929.

A brief announcement places Binyon’s departure for Japan on 10 August 1929: ‘Mr. and Mrs. Laurence Binyon have gone to Japan, and will not return to the British Museum till the end of the year’. The article does not mention that 10 August 1929 was Binyon’s sixtieth birthday. According to Hatcher (43) the Binyons sailed on the Empress of Scotland to Canada, and departed Vancouver on the Empress of France on 29 August, ‘arriving in Yokohama in torrential late summer rains eleven days later’. For the fullest account of Binyon’s stay in Japan see Hatcher, pp. 244-58.
