Biographical / historical:

Vicki Yuriko (nee Imamura) Saito was born on April 30, 1944 to Tom Yukio and Nobuko (nee Kishi) Imamura. At the time of her birth, Saito's parents were interned at the Gila River War Relocation Center, a World War II-era Japanese American concentration camp in Pinal County, Arizona. After their release in 1945, the family moved to Chicago, Illinois, where Saito spent most of her early life. From 1973 to 1986 Saito worked in Dean's Office for the University of California, Davis School of Medicine, first as a technical editor and later in communications and public relations. During her tenure at UC Davis, Saito oversaw public relations during the 1978 Bakke decision, a landmark Supreme Court case that upheld affirmative action but ruled against racial quotas in college admission policy. In 1986, Saito was recruited by the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, where she was Assistant Vice President of External Affairs until 1992.
Saito was the Associate Vice Chancellor for Communications in the Office of the Chancellor for Health Affairs at Duke University Medical Center from 1992 until the mid-2000s. Her office coordinated the public relations presence of Duke University Medical Center, including coordinating media responses and producing promotional materials.
Saito was married to Wilfred Saito, with whom she had one child. She died on September 14, 2015, in Missouri.
