Mars/Lowell Conference


The First Conference on Percival LOWELL was successfully held at Anamidzu from 2 to 5 May 2004 under the joint auspices of the OAA, the Lowell Society of Japan, Toyama Yakumo Kai and Kanazawa Hoshi-no-Kai. Anamidzu is known as the farthest place Percival LOWELL reached in his trip to the Noto peninsula in 1889, and there we could reserve a conference room in a good milieu near the place Lowell landed (thanks to the Kanazawa Institute of Technology). As to a rough sketch of the Conference, see the Façade. We had a happy presence of William SHEEHAN at the Conference.
