Bill Douglass: Mr. Basque

In 2012 the Center for Basque Studies was privileged to publish William A. Douglass: Mr. Basque by Miel Elustondo. The subject of the book, Bill Douglass, is very near and dear to us here at the Center and we caught up with Bill to ask him some questions about the book and his role in the publication (in addition to being the books subject, he is also the translator of the English language edition!).
