WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Museum of the Peace Corps Experience announced today the release of a new tool for researchers and readers of books written by Peace Corps volunteers over the past 60 years.
Information about 3,300 books authored by past and present Peace Corps volunteers is now contained in a central database and available on the Museum’s website under its Exploration tab.
This bibliography is available free of charge. The list can be searched by author, title, publication date and other terms.
Authors whose books are not listed should notify the Museum using the collections link.
The bibliography was developed over many months, building on work by John Coyne (Ethiopia 1962-64) and Marian Haley Beil (Ethiopia 1962-64), founders of Peace Corps Writers and mentors to many authors. Other records were added from the work of Lawrence F. Lihosit (Honduras (1975-77), the Library of Congress and the Washington Research Library Consortium.
