Samuel Ullman Museum and Samuel Ullman Award
Samuel Ullman was an American businessman, poet, humanitarian, and religious leader. In his retirement, he wrote a poetic essay entitled “Youth (青春)" which is known and admired by the Japanese. The Samuel Ullman Museum was created to advance Ullman's vision by examining his civic, educational, and religious ideas and endeavors.
The Japan-America Society of Alabama initiated the Samuel Ullman Award in 1992 to recognize those who have made significant contributions toward the advancement of the relationship between Japan and Alabama.
