The East-West Center Oral History Project strives to capture the Center’s first 50 years as seen through the eyes of staff, alumni, and supporters who have contributed to its growth. The project selected interviewees who represent the Center’s diverse network over five decades and across the region and the institution itself. Presented on these pages are narratives, created from interview transcripts, that highlight the Center’s rich history of intellectual work, education, collaboration and friendship.
The list of interviewees includes Sumi Makey, Larry Smith, and Terry Bigalke. 37 of the over 50 oral history interviews are now up on the EWC website at: http://www.eastwestcenter.org/oralhistory. The project coordinators will try to post the remaining narratives by the end of 2010.
We hope you enjoy these interview narratives as we celebrate our 50th anniversary.
