I attended Achimota Secondary School from 1964 until 1970 as a student. I had 2 great teachers who were with the Peace Corps during the period 1967 to 1968. I don't really remember their names - one taught science. They both participated in our Gilbert & Sullivan production of that year. Obviously the impact on my life was great and I would like to find them to thank them. In the event I don't find them, then my thanks to you all who provided the same for some other young person.

In Ghana as a VSO member in 1968-69, I was teaching at Kumasi Univ. of Science and Technology. I shared a bungalow with Steve Hallauer (Hallaugher?)a Peace Corps volunteer who worked in the Architecture Dept.
Does anyone know where he is now?

My name is Vivian Hazel Adzaku - I served in Ghana 1968-71, and I wonder where Nick Gmur, Mike Bogin, Barry who was allergic to peanuts and Bob who lost about 60 lbs while we were there are- they had Thanksgiving dinner with my mom and me - my mother was working in Ho as a missionary...in fact I may be one of the only volunteers who was met by a parent when arriving in country! I married one of my students at Awudome Secondary School - this year is our 25th wedding anniversary.

Hello, I am looking for Joseph Rothstein who worked in Larabanga, Northern Region, Ghana in the late 90s. Near Mole National Park. I believe he worked closely with the Salia Brothers on a tourist information Centre. There was also at the same time another PCV named Mark I believe. I am a Canadian who has just been conducting research in the area and would be highly indebted for any information provided.

My email address is helenacademic@yahoo.com

Did anyone work with my friend John McGinn in Kumasi? John was killed in an auto accident in Pennsylvania while he was recruiting for the Peace Corps. I was told that a library at the school was established in his name. Does anyone know if the memorial is still there?

Heck, the PC staff at Accra told me I was first deaf PCV in Ghana. I helped the deaf association in Koforidua, E/R,('01-'03). I didn't do much but lead a massive stumble over the undocumented SPA.

Well, what could you expect?

I'm trying to find a Mr. Trotter who taught math at Achimota Secondary School between 1983 and 1985. I'm a former student of his and do remember that he hailed from Wisconsin.

I know I am "tardy" (his word) in trying to find him after all these years, but hopefully someone can put me in touch!

I am Stephen (Steve) Bosworth who was in Ghana II.

After leaving Ghana in 1964, I did my post-graduate studies in London, married "Marilyn" my wonderful English wife, have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren. For many years I taught political philosopohy at the University of Portsmouth in the UK and since 1989 I've been teaching Political Science in Northern Cyprus.

I would like to hear any news about my PC colleagues. For example, Eddie Smith was my partner in Half Assini between 1962 and 1963. I hope he is well.
