The massive earthquake that hit Japan on September 1st 1923 leveled a good part of the Yokohama, and killed or wounded thousands. A preliminary list in the September 6th, 1923 edition of the Oakland Tribune in California gives the names of known victims and survivors that were "foreign". Beneath are many of the names of people associated with banking, and in particular HSBC. Since this was printed and described as merely a preliminary list, corroboration from other sources would be advised.

Died:

H.W. MORSE of the International Banking Corporation
McHenry HOLBROOK of the International Banking Corporation
I.C. MORRISON of Hongkong and Shanghai Bank. NOTE: According to an account by C.R. RICE, and HSBC accountant, A.J. MORRISON had been found pinned down by a block of stone with a fractured leg. He was carried out alive, and taken off in a handcart. UNless there were two MORRISONs at HSBC, I suspect this is an error.
