Mamoru "Mori" Mitsui (三井 護, Mitsui Mamoru, October 9, 1934 – August 26, 2010)[1] was a Japanese-born American architect.

Biography[edit]

Mamoru Mitsui was born in Tokyo, Japan, on October 9, 1934, the son of Takanaga Mitsui and Hiroko Shimazu. During his childhood, he witnessed the Doolittle Raid in 1942.

In 1954, Mitsui moved to the United States to attend Dartmouth College, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in 1958. Before that, his father and his brother Takanobu attended school there, graduating in 1915 and 1943, respectively.[2] After graduating from Dartmouth, Mitsui attended Yale University, where he obtained a degree in architecture in 1963.

Mitsui then moved to Boulder, Colorado, where he began his career in architecture before moving back to New Hampshire where he worked for several architecture firms in Pittsfield and Manchester.[3] One of the firms he worked at, Rose, Goldberg, Mitsui & Associates in Londonderry, was listed as an American Consulting Engineers Council member in 1976.[4] He founded his own firm in Hooksett in 1977.[5] His firm was a member of the ACEC as of 1982.[6] Mitsui also worked as an architect at Auburn.[7] Following that, he worked for Hoyle-Tanner Civil Engineering in Bedford.[8] In the late 1990s, he also served as a base architect at Pease Air National Guard Base, for which he received decorations from the New Hampshire Air National Guard.

Mitsui died at Tufts Medical Center in Boston on August 26, 2010, from heart issues and complications.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Mitsui was naturalized as a citizen of the United States in 1967. His first marriage to Michele White, with whom he had two children, ended in a divorce in 1978. In 1979, he married Judy Kiser, with whom he had a son. His family moved to Kittery, Maine, in 1989. In 1991, during an interview by a local newspaper, Mitsui expressed concern as the fiftieth anniversary of the Attack on Pearl Harbor approached.[10]

During his later years, Mitsui attended services at the First Congregational Church and Parsonage. As of 1993, he served as an executive director of the Japan America Society of New Hampshire.[11] His hobbies included sailing and camping.[12]
