for the past 10 or 15 years i have collected odds and ends about the
Peace Corps, and its role in international development. some years
ago i came across a mimeographed report about PROJECT CAMELOT... it
may just be a faulty memory, but i had always believed that the peace
corps had been implicated [or at least involved in some way] with the
camelot fiasco.

i believe i have a copy of the Horowitz book [The Rise and Fall of
Project Camelot] at home... at least i think i did until our last
move 4 months ago. if i can find the book, i'd be happy to post a
brief synopsis of its content, for those interested.

more importantly, the document i mentioned above seems to be a
numbered, possibly 'confidential' report or planning assessment of
some aspect of CAMELOT. i have not read the report very closely-- it
is only 20 or 30 pages long as i recall. again, if it is of some
interest to carter pate, phil young, or others, i'd be glad to dig it
out of my library and post a synopsis of its content. it is rather
spooky, as i recall... and [one might ask] where the hell did i get
it? i think i picked it out of a 'giveaway' book box which was a
common fixture of our grad student lounge at SIU-carbondale, many
years ago.

to phil young-- if my memory is correct, if peace corps data,
personnel, or 'exit interviews' were somehow used by camelot, then
the project encompassed much more than just latin america, yes?

let me know....
