Administrative history

"Pacific Affairs" is an international quarterly journal featuring articles on the current political, economic, social, and diplomatic problems of Asia and the Pacific. It was originally published by the Institute of Pacific Relations from 1928 to 1960. After the Institute disbanded in 1960, IPR secretary‐general William Holland came to the University of British Columbia to head the Department of Asian Studies, bringing with him many of the IPR's records. "Pacific Affairs" was revived in March 1961, published by the University and with Holland as editor. Since Holland's retirement in 1978, "Pacific Affairs" has been edited by Heath B. Chamberlain (1978‐85), R. Stephen Milne (1985‐88), Ian D. Slater (1988‐2002), and Timothy Cheek (2002‐ ).
