Welcome ...

The O’Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West is a regional studies and public education program of The University of Montana in Missoula.  It focuses on the Interior West of North America – the region straddling the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada.  The University of Montana lies at the center of this region.  Through cross-disciplinary programs in research, teaching, and public education, the Center explores the region's rich history, current challenges, and emerging opportunities.

This week on Mountain West Voices... The second installment of the story of Joyce Vashro, an Englishwoman who married a U.S. serviceman and came to Montana 70 years ago. She and her baby embarked on the Queen Mary with 2800 other war brides. Like them, she says she hardly knew the husband she was rejoining, and had no idea what awaited her in Montana.

Mountain West Voices airs at the following times: Wednesdays at 7:30 pm on Montana Public Radio, and Sundays at 7:00 am on Yellowstone Public Radio. To hear more than 150 archived stories from around the Rocky Mountain West, please visit our website at http://MountainWestVoices.org.
