 James H. Keyes (?-?) 



James H. Keyes worked as a civilian clerk for the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey in Tokyo, Japan before becoming the Records Editor for the Arts and Monuments Division of the Civil Information and Education Section under the Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers (SCAP). Also based in Tokyo, the Arts and Monuments Division was staffed by the MFAA but existed on a much smaller scale than its European counterpart. Under the direction of Officer in Charge, Monuments Man Lt. Cdr. George Stout, the office included Monuments Men Capt. Walter Popham, Lt. Richard S. Davis, Lt. Sherman Lee, and Maj. Laurence Sickman, among others.


The Monuments Men Foundation is very interested in learning more about James Keyes’s work with the MFAA. If you have any information, please contact
