Author and Public Servant

Bill Murphy

“I thoroughly enjoyed Roger’s book about his growing up in French-speaking Lille, Maine and about his experiences as one of the first Peace Corps Volunteers in Thailand. His stories are engaging and very well written. It shows how a young man of twenty-two adapted his unique early life to service in the Peace Corps. I strongly endorse, The Making of a Peace Corps Volunteer: From Maine to Thailand.
