Who Was The Most Disliked Staffer in D.C.?

I’m getting all these emails saying that the questions is too hard. After all, there were 18 lawyers in PC/HQ. That’s more than enough within that group, and we’re not even counting all those Ph.D.! Too hard.


I’ll narrow the guessing game.

One of these six.

Bill Josephson–Deputy General Counsel

Doug Kiker– Chief of the Division of Public Information

Bill Haddad–Associate Director for The Office of Planning and Evaluation

Ruth Olson–Special Assistant to the Chief of the Division of Volunteer Field Support

John Alexander–Director of the African Regional Office

Franklin Williams–Chief  of the Division of Private Organizations

The prize for the first winner is a copy of a fabulous new Peace Corps book, the first one in our PeaceCorpsWriters collection. Autographed by the author.

  • A terrific list. . . I liked and disliked them all!

    My hunch is Alexander was the most disliked.

    He kept a bowl of dog biscuits on his desk and offered them to all he interviewed for employment.

    Years later I sold his body to an NGO whose Board of Directors removed him from the premisises after first obtaining a police restraining order.

    Not my finest hour or his!
