Beate Sirota Gordon, 89, Impresario Of Asian Arts In America
While she is most revered for having seen to it that women's rights were included in Japan's postwar constitution, she was "one of the first people to bring traditional Asian performing arts to audiences throughout North America" - first at the Japan Society and then, for 20 years, at the Asia Society.
