Nobusuke Kishi

Born Nov. 13, 1896 in Yamaguchi Prefecture and deceased on Aug. 7, 1987. Kishi was a bureaucrat-turned politician who served as prime minister between 1957 and 1960. As a member of the cabinet of Hideki Tojo from 1941 to 1944, Kishi was in charge of Japan's economic mobilization in the war against the U.S. Though imprisoned by the occupation authorities as a class-A war criminal, he was released in 1948. As prime minister, Kishi signed the revised Japan-U.S. Security Treaty in 1960. Kishi had great influence in Japan's conservative political community until he died at the age of 90. His younger brother Eisaku Sato also served as prime minister. (Photo was taken on Dec. 23, 1964)
