Harlan Cleveland
Nishimoto, Warren
Educational Perspectives, v40 n2 p43-51 2007
This article presents an interview with Harlan Cleveland, political scientist, diplomat, public executive, author of dozens of articles and books, and eighth president of the University of Hawai'i. Harlan Cleveland was born in 1918 in New York City. He was the son of Stanley Matthews Cleveland and Marian Phelps Van Buren Cleveland. Cleveland stepped into the University of Hawai'i presidency in the aftermath of a long, bitter dispute between and among the university administration, faculty and students regarding the tenure of Oliver Lee, a UH-Manoa political science professor whose strong antiwar views led to the denial of his tenure application by the Thomas H. Hamilton administration, a decision supported by the UH Board of Regents. On April 2, 1969, following the resignation of Hamilton, the regents named Cleveland to be the university's eighth president. Cleveland served during one of the most tumultuous eras of the twentieth century. In this interview, Cleveland narrates his experiences as president of the University of Hawai'i from 1969 to 1974. (Contains 10 endnotes. This article was edited by Hunter McEwan.)
