Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Left India in 1968 and went to Israel where I spent two years studying and working. Met an Australian, married and went to Australia in 1970. Worked in industry for five years and then moved to college/university setting as student counsellor and eventually director of student services. Now retired with interests in billiards and snooker, competitive swimming and Art Deco and Modernist design. Still married with two children but no grandkids yet.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It was the greatest experience of my life. It gave me an internationalist view of the world rather then the Ameri-centric most Americans seem to hold. I also was able to start growing in being an adult.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anyone who was in India with me in the 60's
