|Sir Hubert Edward Henry Jerningham, K.C.M.G. (1842-1914) was a British Liberal Party politician, a Member of Parliament (MP) for Berwick-upon-Tweed from 1881 to 1885, governor of Mauritius from 1892 - 1897, knighted in 1893, and Governor of Trinidad and Tobago between 1897 and 1900. In early December 1905 he started out from Paris, through the Suez Canal eight days later, a fortnight after that in Bombay, Ceylon a month later, George Town on the Malay Peninsula and Singapore in early February 1906, Hong Kong the following week, Canton the next, and Nagasaki the one after that. Col. Sir Claude Maxwell Macdonald, His Majesty's Ambassador at Tokyo [to whom From West to East is dedicated], was able to get the Japanese Government to give Jerningham and his party permission to visit and transport to numerous sites in Japan and newly occupied Manchuria, including receiving hospitality from naval and military authorities in those areas. They were in Honolulu at the end of April, then on to Chicago and New York. 1|
