Arthur Powers ( BA & ES)
- Press 53 has just announced publication of a collection of my short
stories set in Brazil. As some of you know, both my wife - Brenda
(King-Powers) - and I were PCVs (in Bahia & E.S.) and we ended up living in
Brazil for about 30 years - Tocantins, Recife, and Rio de Janeiro. Many of
these stories stem from our work with subsistence farmers in Tocantins. You
can find out more about the book at http://www.press53.com/bioArthurPowers.html

Gostaria de uma ajuda dos senhores para localizar um membro do Peace Corps
Volunteer (Voluntarios da Paz) que serviu no antigo Territorio de Roraima (hoje
Estado Roraima), nos anos 1971 e 1972.
O nome da pessoa que procuro é BETTY POLLOCK e o ultimo contato que tive com

Daly City. California.

Brazil Seven Peace Corps Reunion is only
two month away. Oct. 5th, 6th, and 7th will be here before we know it.
Bob and I looking forward to hosting you in Stillwater.
We have reserved a block of rooms at the
Microtel Inn and Suites. 423 East Hall of Fame under the name: Brazil
Peace Corps, Tel:405-372-7100. It is a new motel and the quoted rate is
$75 plus tax per night. A continental breakfast is included and they
will hold the rooms until Sept. 15th. You must make your own
reservation. The Microtel is about five miles from our home. The
Fairfield Inn (Marriott) is across the street and the Stillwater Plaza
Hotel and Cimarron are up the street. There are also many other hotels
in Stillwater so feel free to stay where you please.
If anyone wants to opt for reliving the Rio Hotel Annex experience we do
have a sofa bed on the porch and one in the living room,but they are in
very high traffic areas so late to bed and very early to rise would be a
Stillwater has an airport but there are no commercial flights. If you
are flying you will need to fly into Tulsa or Oklahoma City. Both
airports are about 70 miles away. The only transportation to Stillwater
is by car. Therefore,if you are flying communicate with everyone so you
can double up on transportation if desired.
Looking forward to hearing from you. More details for the weekend will

Seeking Information about a
Peace Corps Brazil Documentary made between 1964-66.
I was a Volunteer in Sierra
Leone from 1963-65, and for the past 40 years a documentary filmmaker. I
have spent the past 2 years working on a documentary about the Peace Corps
experience. In my film I am weaving the letters, journals, blogs and emails
that Volunteers wrote/write while in their host countries with the profiles
of four former Volunteers who are still trying to make a difference. My wife
Cynthia and I set up a non-profit production and distribution company in
1978 to produce and distribute educational and documentary films (www.mediaprojects.org).
We distribute the films to schools, libraries, civic groups, government
around the country. Some of our work has aired on public and cable
The documentary film - One Step At a Time - was produced by Peace Corps
Brazil between 1964-66. I want to identify the person whose voice over I'm
using and am hoping you might know something about the film or know someone
who can help me.
If you have any information about this documentary, please email me:
