To whom this may concern,

I am doing research trying to located what happened to the original works of the artists who won the Peace Corps Poster Contest in 1971.

Some of the winners were volunteers from the Peace Corps. I would like to contact them to see if they have any information. It is my hope you may have some leads as to where they are now.

The names:
Ken Miller – Reno, Nevada
Tim Murray – Los Angeles, California
Jim Hayes – [stationed in Fiji]
Caryl Strom – [stationed in Micronesia]

I don’t know how old they were back then but assuming perhaps they were only around 18 they would be in their late 60’s now. This names were some of the noted winners mentioned in the 1971 Volunteer publication. There were 60 individuals whose work was chosen to be reproduced for campaign and recruitment posters. Some of them may have been volunteers as well. There were over 2,000 entries that year from individuals in the US and around the world. Some were working with the Peace Corps others like myself were art students. I was one of the 60 winners.

If interested you can see the PDF file of the 1971 volume of the Volunteer here you will find the portion about the contest around pages 65-69.

Any leads you can offer me on these names above would be most welcomed.

Sincerely yours,

Ellen A. Jervis
