Hello all,
I'm Mark Raymaker's younger brother Chris. Mark sent home some 1000+ Kodak slides which he and others took during his stay in Tanzania. They are in very good condition and each is annotated with descriptive and touching comments about the various subjects. If you would like an e-mail file of the photo(s) you are depicted in, please let me know and I'll forward it to you with his comments.
This is a brief list of some of the many individuals shown among the slides. If you know any of them, please let them know they may contact me. My e-mail is:craymaker@new.rr.com
Individuals shown are: Leon Parker,John Hohl, Marlene Hohl,Jim & Nola Morrissey,Bob Meiers,
John Carson, Tony Arnold, Gary Codane,Peter Johnson,Joe Bowen, Cathy Bengstrong, Phil Logan,Dan Kaiser,Carla Gragick,Carol Word, Bob Tusbak,Mal Morris,Bruce Jones,Doug Daniels,Liz Moffet,Barb Bambridge,Lois Bendz,Kathy Bloom, John Lake, Walt Price, Candy Swanson,Caren Cook, B Dent,Charlie Guthurie... These photos are a wonderful look back on a time and place 40 some years ago. I'm sure you all may enjoy them. They are your memories, not mine. I'm just the keeper of the record of your adventures.
Thank you,
Chris Raymaker

I recently became aware of you through Paul Sack and then found this site. I was in Mark's PC group and trained with him in Syracuse. We kept in touch throughout our tour, but then of course that came to an end. I would be interested to talk to you sometime and answer any questions you might have. However, I cannot add anything regarding Mark's disappearance, as I was already out of Tanzania when that happened.

Chris, Caren Cook here. Thanks for posting. I was with Mark in the extremely weird landscape we ended up in that night. I've tried mailing to your above email, but it gets sent back. I would love to communicate with you, and see photos you've gathered. In New Mexico, 505-980-1042 or cac409@aol.com
