Title: Dr. Horace Newton Allen U.S. minister to Korea

Description: Dr. Horace Newton Allen (1859-?), U.S. minister to Korea during the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905), photographed standing on the U.S. legation steps in Seoul, Korea; a medical doctor from Delaware, Ohio, he had earlier been a Presbyterian medical missionary to Peking, China, who, while in that capacity, saved the life of the King of Korea's young nephew who had been badly injured in a mob disturbance; Allen is credited with sewing the first seeds toward modernizing Korea, including assisting in sending the first Korean representative to Washington, D.C.; about 250 Americans lived in Korea at the time of the war; signs of American enterprise in Seoul at the time included electric lighting, water facilities, and trolley cars; the war resulted from a long-standing aggressive policy of Russian Czar Nicholas II (Nikolay Alexandrovich Romanov; May 18, 1868-July 17, 1918) in the Far East that led to friction with Japanese Emperor Mutsuhito (AKA: The Meiji Emperor or The Mikado; November 3, 1852-July 30, 1912); war began on February 10, 1904; Japan won several battles before U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt (October 27, 1858-January 6, 1919) mediated truce talks in 1905; Russia ceded to Japan the Liaodong Peninsula and the southern half of Sakhalin; Japan gained further interests in Korea and annexed the former kingdom in 1910; Russia and Japan promised to evacuate Manchuria in favor of China; two Japanese movies tell about the war: Emperor Meiji and the Great Russo-Japanese War (1957), and Battle of Japan Sea (1969); the demise of the czar and his family is told in Nicholas and Alexandra (1971 UK films);
