On February 23, March 9, April 27 and May 24, 1995, Edward V. K. Jaycox was interviewed on behalf of the World Bank Group Archives oral history program by Jochen Kraske and Lou Galambos. During his tenure at the Bank from 1964 to 1996, Mr. Jaycox worked in the following areas: as director in the transportation projects department (1972-1973), the transportation and urban projects department (1973-1976), the water and urban development department (1977-1979), and the East Asia and Pacific (EAP) country programs department (1979-1984); and as vice president in both the eastern Africa region (1984-1987) and the Africa region (1987-1996). He discusses the reorganization of the World Bank under Robert McNamara and how the new objectives weakened or compromised functions of the World Bank because employees did not get the cultural changes for which they were aiming. His transcript also concerns projects in Africa, the board of directors, and accountability.
