Erik was nice enough to send me a heads up on this link to the Amrican University Peace Corps collection. He wrote me: I made the video above about the Peace Corps Archive at a recent history event organized by Jesse Bailey who is the Historian of the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers of Washington (RPCV/W).  He moderated a panel discussion about the history of RPCV/W.  The participants were all former board members of RPCV/W.  There were even many audience members who were very steeped in the history of the Peace Corps.  The event lasted more than 2 hours.  Here is a teaser:

As Erik also writes: Please consider donating letters, diaries, and/or other items to the Peace Corps Archive at American University.
