Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I returned to the USA and got a Harvard University Master's in Public Health, worked overseas for awhile,in Africa and the Mideast, and then went to Saudi Arabia for 8 years, whee I was the only non Moslem, non Middle Eastern doc to ever get a private license in the Kingdom. I now live and work in Rochester New Hampshire
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I have written a Story of the grief and frustration tha the Volunteers and I went through. The Peace Corps management in Morocco was sick or worse for most of the time I worked there, the Washington management not much better
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone who knew Jim Stout, who was killed in Morocco in a road accident near Casablanca in 67 or 58.
