Biographical / Historical

Barry Roy Duell is the son of Paul M. and Velma Duell. Paul M. Duell moved from Kansas in 1957 to teach chemistry at Willamette University until his death in 1983. Paul M. Duell was a World War II veteran and volunteered to host students from the first Willamette University Summer Seminar (1965) (in cooperation with Tokyo International University (TIU) and the International College of Commerce (ICC)). The two students Paul Duell's family hosted were the first people from Japan his sons, including Barry, met firsthand.

Barry Duell in his senior year at Willamette was part of the first group in the fall of 1973 that reciprocated the Willamette University Summer Seminar, going to Japan for a semester. Duell and the other Willamette students spent a semester at the Tokyo International University campus in Kawagoe, a city about 20 miles outside Tokyo. Duell graduated from Willamette University in 1974.

Duell became an assistant professor of English and held a position at the International College of Commerce and Economics (ICCE) from 1976-2015. He was the first full-time Western faculty member hired by the university. In this position he became the chief liaison officer with Willamette University and assisted with the Japan Studies Program. In the 1980s he was noted as serving as the unofficial Salem ambassador in Kawagoe City, welcoming Salemites and Willamette students.
