Miki Crawford, associate professor of communication, Southern
Miki Crawford co-authored the recently published book, Japanese War Brides in America: An Oral History.
The book features the stories of 19 Japanese war brides who came to the United States after WWII. Crawford has conducted over 50 interviews from various locations in the United States including Honolulu, Seattle, Sacramento, Las Vegas, El Paso, and Fayetteville and Jacksonville, NC.
Crawford’s research purpose has been to collect and preserve oral histories for generations who want to know about the Japanese war bride experiences. Each story is unique, yet there are some common threads that help others understand their situations and their ways of thinking. With the assimilation of 50,000 Japanese war brides into the American culture, these women hold a unique place in American history.
