Marian Haley Beil (Ethiopia 1962-64) the publisher/designer/manager of our site will continue to maintain Peace Corps World Wide. Marian and I began this Third Goal effort of Peace Corps Writers shortly after the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of the agency, but long before that, Marian had been the central Volunteer in the organizing of the RPCVs from Ethiopia, creating one of the first newsletters for RPCVs. Having designed two websites for Peace Corps Writers, she also created and manages Peace Corps Books that as of today has published over ninety books, mostly memoirs, of the Peace Corps experience. Having a B.A. in mathematics from Seton Hill College in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, she earned her masters in design from Rochester Institute of Technology’s School for American Crafts. Marian designed our newsletter and website and keeps it up to date.
Our site has also benefited from the contributions of others, especially Joanne Roll (Colombia 1963-65) who keeps tab on the agency, and book editor Dean W. Jefferson (El Salvador 1974-76; Costa Rica 1976-77). All of us are indebted to Noah Beil, Marian’s son, the tech genius for the site.
That all said, if it wasn’t for Marian Beil there would never have been a Peace Corps Writers newsletter or a Worldwide website. It will be Marian who will keep it going online. Thank you, Marian.
