Scott Oki

Scott Oki is a retired Microsoft executive and philanthropist. He has probably most touched the lives of readers through his early support of Densho, including his pledge of $1 million to aid in its startup during 1996-2001. More recently, his financial support is acknowledged inside the front covers of numerous seminal Asian American book titles from University of Washington Press as “The Scott and Laurie Oki Series in Asian American Studies.” These titles include “Personal Justice Denied,” (Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians, 1997), “Letters From the 442nd” (Minoru Masuda, 2008), and “John Okada, The Life and Rediscovered Work of the Author of No-No Boy” (Frank Abe, Greg Robinson, and Floyd Cheung, 2018).
