Comments from Arkadaslar:
Maybe most of you knew this but I didn't. I saw Jim Hogan's
cousin at church this morning and she shared the sad news that Jim passed
away last Saturday. A really nice guy. He'll be missed. Does anybody have a
contact for family?
Yes, it is
sad. Jim and his wife Elizabeth were regular attendees of the NYC Bayram
celebration. They missed the event this past October, because Jim was
recovering from some medical issue. They have attended many in the past,
and you're right - he was a really nice guy.
a Christmas card and note from Jim and Elizabeth with no reference to an
illness so this news is a shock to us.
Jim was a nice guy. I liked him. He always came to the
Cumhuriyet Bayram re-union in New York every time.
My namesake.."HOGAN"...Jane and I were the other two Hogan's
in PCV-Turkey. I will miss him.
I am so shocked and saddened to hear of Jim Hogan's
passing. He and Elizabeth really wanted to join us on our anniversary trip
to Turkey last October, but weren't able to go due to health problems. Even
though I rarely saw him I will miss him. What a guy!
Sharlene and I share your sadness upon learning of Jim's
passing. He was a good PCV and a fine guy.

Mugs and I are saddened to hear of Jim's passing. We will remember
both of you in our thoughts and prayers. We lost Frank Creel a few years
ago and Jim's passing as well reminds us of how much we will miss them both
at Peace Corps get togethers. Both of them have our abiding love and
respect. Chuck and Mugs Mast

We are sorry to learn of
the passing of Jim, but grateful for his service to our nation as a Peace
Corps Volunteer in Turkey.
Liz Hogan, his wife, replied to Linda Scheffer in April 2014:
we were/are close friends of the Bringedahls. Jim's first year in Turkey as
a PC volunteer he lived in Ceyhan with David Bloch and Kevin McCarthy who
compiled the wonderful history of Turkey 2 some five years ago. Jim taught
at METU in Ankara and lived with David Bringedahl, Jim Lay, and Charles
White his second year, 1964-65, and we have remained close to them over the
years, not to mention many others with whom we have linked up, mostly at
reunions in Washington, D.C., some of which were facilitated by Kathy
Markley (can't think of her married name at this instant) and John Wintrol.
Anyway, we maintained happy memories and relationships with these
individuals and others after our marriage in Ankara on June 24, 1965. Our
wedding was at the home of Ross( the Peace Corps Director of Turkey) and
Emily Pritchard. Kevin McCarthy's chronicle of Turkey 2 volunteers all these
years later contains wonderful life stories and photos of so many, including
our wedding. I feel part of this magical circle and hope to remain
affiliated following Jim's death, if that is all right. In the wake of his
passing I have received so many wonderful condolence notes from Jim's PC
friends which have buoyed me.
Jim's Peace Corps
experience left an imprint which led to him earning a master's degree from
New York University in Political Science with a concentration in the Middle
East. He earned a master's in Guidance and Education from Xavier University
in Cincinnati as well. Jim also conceived and produced a film titled "Arabs
and Jews: The Crisis*," which was a finalist in the National Educational Film
Foundation Festival in the 70s. Oh, just for the record, Jim was born
November 25, 1937.
Without a doubt the
Peace Corps and Turkey 2 were among the most significant experiences in his

mid-1980s by Prentice-Hall Media, which had bought it in 1968, to Guidance
Associates in Mt. Kisco, NY. Apparently Guidance Associates is still in
business so you could contact them to see if they have a library of
previously published titles or any information.

maintain filmstrips, but if they do, they might be willing to loan it. The
best bet is to have a copy made and one of these libraries could do it for
