Alvin R. Cahn (1892-1971) was Professor of Zoology at the University of Illinois and latterly worked in conservation for the Tennessee Valley Authority. In the years following World War II he was on the staff of Allied General Headquarters in Tokyo, where he produced several major reports on mollusks. This paper focuses on his GHQ career and in particular his relationship with Tokubei Kuroda (1886-1987), the most important Japanese malacologist of the 20th century.
