Peace Corps Authors: A Bibliography

The purpose of Peace Corps Authors: A Bibliography is to build a comprehensive list of all books written by Peace Corps volunteers and staff.

Peace Corps Authors: A Bibliography incorporates the rich bibliography developed by John Coyne (Ethiopia 1962-64), and Marian Haley Beil (Ethiopia 1962-64), founders of Peace Corps Writers and mentors to many authors. Additional records come from the work of Lawrence F. Lihosit (Honduras 1975-1977), Library of Congress, and Washington Research Library Consortium. More titles are added as Museum curators learn of them. 

Books can be searched by author, title, or publication date. If you wish to see all information in a record, including the publisher, click on the book title and the comprehensive “Library” record will appear. Many entries include the author’s country and dates of service. Some entries offer descriptions of book contents and awards received by authors.

We want to hear from Peace Corps authors who are not yet included in this bibliography. Please add a comment below and include book information if it is missing from the database.

Peace Corps Authors: A Bibliography supports the education and research mission of Museum of the Peace Corps Experience.
