1936 Map by the Japanese Army General Staff Office
This map shows Ullungdo and its appended island, Dokdo. Published by the Japanese Army General Staff Office in March 1936, it places Dokdo and Ullungdo in the region of Korea. It is highly likely that SCAP GHQ used maps like these when they decided to exclude Dokdo from the Japanese territorial sphere. These maps are a reminder of the commonly accepted view of Dokdo´s sovereignty (in both Korea and Japan) prior to the late 1940s and early 1950s.
