An interview with Ernest Greenwood as he discusses his immigration from Transylvania and early childhood; teaching; interest in sociology and social work; Federal Employment Relief Act; graduate school; social work in Ohio; dissertation; entrance into university teaching; move to Los Angeles; Pittsburgh University position to teach social welfare; position at UC Berkeley; interest in research methodology; work in Chile after retirement; publications; early life in Austro-Hungarian empire; life in U.S.; father's occupation and death; development of doctoral program at UC Berkeley.

Ernest Greenwood, Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Social Welfare, describes his entry into the field of social work, having earlier obtained advanced degrees in sociology and embarked on a career teaching research. His own early years in an orphanage and later conviction that his interest lay more with people-related research led him to work in the field of social work, acquiring an MSW in the process. He combined his interest in social sciences theory and statistics with social work, writing several well-received books on social work as a profession and related research theory. These have been translated into several languages and have been important tools in the teaching of social work research by him and others. He was influential in the shaping of social work doctoral study at UC Berkeley.
