Turkey V taken at the Experiment for International Living, Brattleboro, Vermont, September 1964.

Training memories:  Robinson Sawmill History by Harlan Green

President İsmet İnönü with T-5's

As my memory of dates and places is no longer exact, I've been referring to my copy of a book written by a fellow Turkey V member.  To Make a Difference: A Peace Corps Memoir, Turkey 1964-66 by Julie Woods Smith Olson.  If you want a "trip down memory lane," I recommend reading this book.

Turkey V arrived in Ankara October 15, 1964.  We were housed at the ever-popular Otel Berlin in Ulus. In addition to some in-country lectures, language instruction, indoctrination, etc., we were treated to a reception and "meet and greet" with President İsmet İnönü on October 22nd. Our 52 or so Rural Community Development volunteers were broken into smaller groups for photos with the President.  Julie indicates that "we were invited to a tea party presented by the Ministry of Village Affairs on the top of a high building with a marvelous view of the city at night."

In the photo, I"ve named all of our group, but forgot to add a reference to the ever-present portrait of Atatürk on the wall.

Tureky-5s in the photo are, Left to Right: John Meigs, Jesse Arnelle - CARE, Sall (Meigs) Caslon, Tana Jones Dugan, Bill Taylor, İsmet İnönü, Chuck Laskey - CARE, Paul Ahlquist, Ellen Corley, Barbara Bussy, Char (Miller) Jirousek, Paul Bussy, Mike Miller, Eric Hutchinson (?), Bruce Larson, and Mady Boland Kenny.
