Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
After Peace Corps became Foreign Service Officer and in the following quarter century served in East Pakistan, India, Vietnam, Kenya, Thailand, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Norway. One daughter born in Dhaka, another in Bangalore. I still exchange letters with Abdul Haque-Khan, one of my colleagues at Ananda Mohan College, Mymensingh.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I remained in touch for years with Peter Orr, who made a career in USAID. He died of meningitis in the Dominican Republic in 1983. Mike Brightman died in Vietnam (as a Captain in Artillery) in October 1969. I still grieve for both of them.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
