1969: Robert B. Stone served in Philippines in Guiuan, Eastern Samar; Puerto Princessa, Palawan beginning in 1969
Returned Peace Corps Volunteer Robert B. Stone can be contacted at robostoneasbcglobaldnet
Country of Service: Philippines
Training Group: Philppines 24
Cities you served in: Guiuan, Eastern Samar; Puerto Princessa, Palawan
Arrival Year: 1969
Departure Year: 1971
Worked in a Malaria Unit covering Eastern Samar for first year. Worked on a 11 person study team the second year to determine the specific reasons why the Phillipines fourth five-year crash program to eradicate malaria using WHO/USAID methods was not working.
Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Instead of returning home after the Peace Corps assignment ended, I studied at the University of the Philippines for a masters degree in planning. I thought I would continue working in the third world. I ended up working in LA's Skid Row, instead, which is about as close as an American can come to working in the third world without needing a passport.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Greatest learning experience in my life.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
