Country of Service: Togo
Training Group: Togo Fisheries 66

Arrival Year: 1966

Work Description: creating fishponds for up-country pond culture
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Worked as a registered architect for 25 years, even briefly in 1975
back in Nigeria for the Nigerian Military Government. Now, at 60, I'm
a professional photographer doing primarily portraiture in the
Brandywine Valley of Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I became ill with a breakdown fron culture shock primarily...but it
was one of the best things I ever did in my life and encouraged me
to return to West Africa and work in Nigeria.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone seeking a reunion of Togo Fisheries 66 can send data to me
and I will put it all together in a book, as once before for all of us.
I'm still looking for Diane Elaine Roloson who ran the pub "The
Library" in Norman, Oklahoma, during our training. (not in the
Peace Corps, but a friend of all, and darned hard to get off my mind!
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Remember that you are forever changed by the Peace Corps
inasmuch as your perception of the world is broadened. By having
lived within a culture you can embrace all cultures and have a
valuable perspective on values and time and wealth that you could
never achieve otherwise.
