I am looking for Returned Peru Peace Corps Richard Baldinger (sp?), maybe 1964-66.

He was a photographer. In a desparate act, I am hoping he might have some old shots he took of a suspension bridge I worked on in the Tambo Valley and a posta medica I worked on in Arequipa.

My name is Maurie Rasmussen and Richard will most likely have no idea nor memory of who I am.

Please contact maurasmussen@hotmail.com
