Dear Blanche,

You were one of my lecturers at ISP Bukavu in 1977-78. I was so much interested in research in african traditional music and you left me an unforgettable souvenir for this purpose: a portable tape recorder/player. I am very grateful for that. Even though I did not continue with research (I am currently working in the emergency/humanitarian with the United Nations in Ghana) I remain very grateful for your generosity. Gog bless you. Best regards. Eugene NDIANABO.

To all who knew Blanche Clegg in Zaire, 1977-80:

Blanche Clegg died Thursday, November 22, 2007. The three years she spent in the Peace Corps were among the best in her life. She loved the people she met there and all that she learned there, and she shared that knowledge and passion with many people over the years. Her obituary can be viewed online in the Salt Lake Tribune (Sunday, November 25, 2007 issue):

And I can be reached at: connieh@csufresno.edu. connieh@csufresno.edu
