Oral History Series Vol. 04 George Housner

Connections: The EERI Oral History Series, George Housner. Stanley Scott, interviewer. The fourth book in the EERI oral history series, Connections, focuses on a giant in the field of earthquake engineering. George Housner, distinguished elder scholar, statesman, and activist in earthquake engineering and seismic safety, truly deserves the title of pioneer. His career is unequaled in the field, and spans almost all of earthquake engineering as we know it. He has been involved in many important developments, including the establishment of EERI and the International Association for Earthquake Engineering and national and international conferences, most of the major national studies and government commissions, and many of the important engineering projects of the last half century. Stanley Scott, Research Associate at the Institute of Governmental Studies at the University of California, Berkeley, conducted principal interviews with Professor Housner between 1987 and 1995, although many additions were made between 1995 and 1997 during the editing process. The result is a rich and fascinating oral history, complementing and expanding on the recollections of Henry Degenkolb, John Blume, Michael Pregnoff, and John Rinne already published in the EERI series. 275 pp.

The intent of the EERI oral history project is to publish a series of interviews with prominent figures in the field of earthquake engineering to preserve some of the rich history of those who have pioneered in shaping seismic design theory and practice.
