Sen Katayama (1859-1933) graduated from Iowa College in 1892 and completed some graduate studies at Andover Theological Seminary and at Yale University. He worked as a university instructor and a Christian Sunday school teacher upon return to his native Japan but became increasingly active in labor and socialist causes as well. By the time of his burial in the walls of the Kremlin, Katayama had traveled widely and served as an officer in the Comintern.
