7 By adolescence, he certainly accepted the values held by the turn-of-thecentury Japanese elite. He was fanatically loyal to country and Emperor. An ultra-nationalist, Ishii at an early age set his sights upon serving his country by becoming a member of the military. His natural bent was toward medicine, and he decided to follow a career as a medical doctor in Imperial Japan’s Army. Major Ishii Shiro comes to Manchuria 15 Extremely intelligent, one might even classify him as being brilliant, and with extraordinary, almost superhuman physical energy, the multi-talented young man was admitted to the Medical Department of Kyoto Imperial University in April 1916.

The blood-taking routine was never interrupted. As a result, most “patients” grew progressively weaker. They were eliminated with an injection of poison when they no longer were of research value. 8 A few prisoners who Ishii or one of his subordinates determined were no longer useful experimental subjects were simply shot to death by a member of the Togo Unit. Pathologists then conducted autopsies, and, as with the other victims, disposed of the remains in the crematorium. Ishii’s initial experiments were crude and limited in scope in comparison to the refinements he devised later.

Ishii’s task was to attempt to locate and isolate the virus believed responsible for the malady. He worked on filtration systems as well as other techniques in this difficult assignment. 13 During his post-graduate studies at Kyoto Imperial University, Ishii continued to exploit his ability to ingratiate himself with people who could further his ambitions. Many of his professors admired him greatly. The University President, Araki Torasaburo, became one of his supporters. The graduate student frequently dropped by to visit President Araki at his home, which was located near the laboratory in which Ishii worked and studied.
