Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Worked on McGovern Campaign and with United Farm Workers
January-August 1972. Married Sonia Lopez, a Colombian Anthropologist,
who I met in Honduras, in June 1972. Attended Law School at University of
Colorado 1972-75. Worked with Illinois Migrant Labor Council Summer
1974. Member of Board of Editors, University of Colorado Law Review.
Worked as a law clerk to a Federal District Court Judge 1975-76. Employed
as chief in-house legal counsel to the Platte River Power Authority (a
non-profit public power agency owned by four Colorado municipalities).
Sonia and I have three children ages 24, 21 and 21.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It changed my perspective on life and country forever. I find it frustrating
that so many Americans are ignorant and apathetic about the influence
our government and other institutions wield in (especially the third) world.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone I trained with--I have only maintained contact with a handful.
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Take pride in the changes you have made and have yet to make--in your
own life as well as in the lives of others.
