To record and bring attention to the early years of operations research analysis and the Military Operations Research Society (MORS), the MORS Board of Directors created a Heritage Committee in 1992. The Heritage Committee uses two main methods for disseminating the history of operations research analysis. One is to conduct a Heritage Session at the yearly MORS Symposium; the second method is to publish oral histories provided by prominent MORS members. This document contains the oral history of one of the most distinguished members of MORS: Wayne Philo Hughes, Jr. Wayne Hughes is currently the Dean of the Graduate School of Operational and Information Sciences at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in Monterey, California. The purpose of the interview was to gain insight into Dean Hughes’ background, his motivation for studying Operations Research analysis, his early experiences in operations analysis, and his ideas regarding the development and future direction of MORS. The interview was conducted in three sessions: 31 March 2003 at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California, and 9 June 2003 and 11 June 2003 at United States Marine Corps Base, Quantico, Virginia.
