"Hendrick Conrad Joannes Heusken (January 20, 1832 – January 15, 1861) was a Dutch-American interpreter for the first American consulate in Japan, established at Gyokusen-ji in Shimoda, Shizuoka in the late Bakumatsu period.

"Townsend Harris, (born Oct. 3, 1804, Sandy Hill, N.Y., U.S.—died Feb. 25, 1878, New York City), U.S. politician and diplomat, the first Western consul to reside in Japan, whose influence helped shape the future course of Japanese–Western relations. 
A minor Democratic politician, he left New York after 1847 to embark on a series of financially disastrous trading voyages in the Pacific and Indian oceans. He was living in Shanghai in 1853 when Commo. Matthew C. Perry passed through the city on his way to Japan, which he opened to trade with the West. Harris’ bid to accompany Perry was rejected, whereupon Harris used his political connections in Washington, D.C., to have himself appointed (1855) the first consul general to Japan."
