Abstract:In 1961, the UH Board of Regents selected Alexander Spoehr to succeed the Center's first leader, Acting Chancellor Murray Turnbull. When he took office in early 1962, Spoehr's main job was "to get the show on the road." During Spoehr's tenure, the Center built its campus, launched its first organizational structure, and established its major support offices. In this 1975 interview, Spoehr notes the challenges of balancing the interests of the State Department, the U.S. Congress, the University of Hawaii, and the State of Hawaii.
