dc.descriptionMark Peattie, PhD (May 3, 1930 - Jan. 22, 2014). Resident of Redwood City, California. Mark R. Peattie, noted scholar of Japanese history, died peacefully, surrounded by family on January 22, at age 83. Peattie was born in Nice, France, to Donald Culross and Louise Redfield Peattie on May 3, 1930. His family moved to Santa Barbara, where he grew up with his brothers, Malcolm and Noel. He graduated from Pomona College before serving in the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps from 1952 to 1954. After completing his M.A. in history at Stanford, Peattie began his career as a cultural diplomat for the U.S. Information Agency in Cambodia, followed by nine years in Japan-first in Sendai, then Tokyo, and finally in Kyoto, as director of the American Cultural Center. He spent one year in Washington D.C. before his love of history called him to the world of academia. After earning his Ph.D. in modern Japanese history from Princeton, he taught at Penn State, UCLA, and the University of Massachusetts in Boston. Peattie was a research fellow at Harvard, a visiting scholar at Stanford, and a senior research staff member of Stanford's Hoover Institute. His publications include The Battle for China, Sunburst, Nan'yo, Kaigun, The Japanese Wartime Empire, The Japanese Colonial Empire, and Ishiwara Kanji and Japan's Confrontation with the West. Peattie was married to the late Alice Richmond Peattie for 52 years and is survived by his daughters, Victoria and Caroline; son, David; nieces, Dana and Hilary; and grandchildren, Brendan, Marcus, Kylie, Kai, and Jessica.
