Stories From the Collection
Artifacts are powerful storytelling tools which will shed light on the work and history of our nation’s grassroots diplomacy that may otherwise go unnoticed by the general public. With over 300 items and growing, the collection reflects a wide range of people, places, cultures, issues, and topics that make up the Peace Corps and its’ volunteers history. Collecting efforts are ongoing as we continue to build our virtual and physical presence. Here is a spotlight on a few of the stories the items in our collection tell.
