Abstract

When the US Army Military Government in Korea (USAMGIK) was established in September 1945 after the end of World War II, the United States was entering unfamiliar terrain and was struggling to manage the situation in Korea. Therefore, General John R. Hodge, the commander of USAMGIK, eagerly sought to obtain experts on Korea. Considering the lack of information about Korea, American missionaries were the only well-organized group who had affection for and information about Korea. Horace H. Underwood in particular was ideally qualified to act as advisor since he had managed the Chosen Christian College (CCC: today’s Yonsei University) as principal from 1934 to 1941. (the rest omitted).
