James Oelke-Farley serves as a historian for War in the Pacific National Historical Park on Guam and American Memorial Park on Saipan. Oelke-Farley holds a BA in History from the University of Guam and is currently at work co-authoring a book (with Timothy Babalis, PhD) about the American Memorial Park in Saipan for the National Park Service. Although a resident of Guam for over a quarter century, he currently resides in (and works remotely) from Naples, Italy. Oelke-Farley’s main research interests revolve around the interregnum between the Spanish-American War and World War Two; specifically the American militarization of the island of Guam and the relationship of the island to the United States during that period.
