Married name of author Chizuko Watanabe[edit]

I want to find if Chizuko Watanabe has a name in Japanese (so it can be indicated with the English name) and therefore I want to see where she taught classes. That way I can access archives of any university websites and check for documents indicating her name.

When searching for info on Chizuko Watanabe I found:

Kashima, Tetsuden. Judgment Without Trial: Japanese American Imprisonment During World War II (The Scott and Laurie Oki series in Asian American studies). University of Washington Press, November 1, 2011. p. 248. ISBN 0295802332, 9780295802336.
  • "39. Chizuko W. Hougen, "The Japanese Immigrant Community in Mexico: Its History and Present," M.A. thesis, California State University, Los Angeles, June 1983, p. 64."

So her married name is "Chizuko W. Hougen" WhisperToMe (talk) 07:32, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

There is a "Chizuko W. Hougen" (April 22, 1947-January 31, 2005) on the Social Security Death Index:

I want to know if she ever taught at a university so I can get information from archives of websites.

From (Search results) it states a "Chizuko Watanabe" married "William E Hougen" which explains the different name used for her in Tetsuden Kashima's citation. WhisperToMe (talk) 08:05, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

It seems like she became an instructor at a university. But I want to find out which one(s)...

  • "Mount Hood Community College mil FACULTY AND PROFESSIONAL STAFF Ako Durrin, Instructor, Language and Literature Division Chizuko W. Hougen, Instructor, Language and Literature Division COURSES OFFERED Language and[...]"

So a "Chizuko W. Hougen" taught at Mount Hood Community College around 1995. She may have taught at the Universite de Montreal around 1989. WhisperToMe (talk) 08:19, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

Seems like a "C Hougen" was still teaching at Mount Hood in 2002:

Text of her obituary from The Oregonian 2/4/2005:

"A memorial service will be at 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 6, 2005, in Gresham United Methodist Church for Chizuko "Chiko" Watanabe Hougen, who died Jan. 31 at age 57.

Chizuko Watanabe was born April 22, 1947, in Tokyo. She immigrated to Los Angeles and received bachelor's and master's degrees from California State University, Los Angeles. In 1983, she moved to Gresham. She taught Japanese for Mt. Hood Community College for more than 18 years. She married William in 1983.

Survivors include her husband; son, Bill; mother, Kimi Watanabe; sisters, Taeko Shimozaki and Michiko Martensen; and brothers, Yotaro Watanabe and Fujio Watanabe.
