Interview Summary

Jim M. Brown taught physical education and coached basketball as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bucaramanga and Cali, Colombia, from 1962-1964. He tells many stories of being in one of the Peace Corps’ first groups in Colombia. Jim says that we all have language stories and relates one about a reception held in Bucaramanga to welcome four PCVs. During the last week of training in 1962, Bill Moyers spoke to his group in El Paso. When reflecting on his time in Peace Corps, he says that the Peace Corps shaped his future, continuing his education to receive his Master’s and Ph.D. degrees in health and human performance. He finishes by commenting on the bond and camaraderie he still has with his fellow Peace Corps Colombia IV volunteers.
