Yoko Natori Gulde BS ’77


Yoko Natori Gulde BA ’77, now retired, volunteers at the Oregon Nikkei Society. She is project coordinator for the translation of the Oshu Nippo, a Japanese-language daily newspaper published in Portland in the early 20th century. The society will post the first 10 issues (300 pages) translated from Edo-period Japanese to English on its website. Gulde has recruited and coordinated more than 100 translators from both Portland and Japan for the project.


Yoko Natori Gulde BS ’77 and Robin Gulde BS ’77 are both headed into the retirement phase of their lives. Yoko retired from her paralegal position at Lane Powell in January 2017. Robin sold his CPA practice, Gulde & Ortquist, but plans to stay on in an assistive capacity for the next few years. He will also be teaching at Concordia University in Portland. In retirement, they will be enjoying travel and spending time with their 3-year-old granddaughter, Emma.
