Dave Chaddock

Dave Chaddock has studied the history of U.S. relations with China and Korea for several years. He is authoring a multi-volume set on the topic.

Dave holds a B.A. from Boston University and an M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Washington. The time he has spent researching what started as his doctoral work, may have (he says) set a record for most postgraduate years working toward a PhD without ever actually getting one!

Dave taught for a couple of years in Lake City, Florida and Boulder, Colorado. He was an activist in protests against the Vietnam War.

In 1973, he visited China with the US-China Friendship Association.

That same year, he began his career as a Dockworker and a member of the ILWU. He is now launching a new career as a historian.
