I don't think "training group" was a term used during my years of
service. I trained at Howard University in Washington, D.C., with the
first group sent to French West Africa--Togo, Senegal and Niger. I
think I was one of the volunteers whose records were lost in a fire
at PC headquarters during the Nixon administration, so I treasure
the letter President Kennedy sent to thank the volunteers who
served during the early years.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I volunteered to teach in Israel for one year after the June 1967
war. I was an editor for Girl Scouts of the USA for a number of years
and later became a lawyer. Now I am an administrative law judge
for the New York City Department of Health. When Friends of Togo
was first organized, was a Board member. In the 1980s, after more
than a 20 year absence, I returned to visit Togo but have been fairly
out of touch in recent years.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I would like to return to this question another day.
