Building Together during the 1970s


This corporate legacy project presents a series of interviews with Americans and Koreans who worked in businesses, banks, and government during the 1970s in Korea. They played important roles to help advance the rapid economic development of Korea. How did American businesses, banks, and the US government work with the Republic of Korea to overcome the 1970s oil price shocks and help develop Korea into an advanced economy?

This video series at the Korea Society was created to honor American and Korean contributors to this process. The Korea Society is grateful to Philip Sherman, a former Citibank Korea Country Manager and Korea Society patron and member for his time and effort in collecting the stories of the individuals that contributed to Korea's economic lift-off. This series was produced by Peter Stuehmke and Nikita Desai.
