first trained for the Cote Ivoire in Monroe Louisiana in l968. There I
married another trainee, Barry Boyce, and we ended up transferred to
the Uganda program.

Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:

Have worked as a writer and editor of several hometown newspapers on
the east coast, but for the past 16 years have been holed up in a remote
area of northern california where I've raised four daughters and as many
horses on a solar powered homestead.

Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:

It's only been lately that I've realized the impact Uganda had on my
thinking. I went there to make change and the only change I made was
in me.

Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:

From the original, Cote Ivoire group, I'd like to contact Amy Wildes and
Rita Goldstein.
