Professor Barker Donates to Kennedy Presidential Library

Professor Robert S. Barker has edited and donated to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston an additional collection of papers dealing with the role of Peace Corps Volunteers in the late 1960's establishment of Panama's pioneer program of legal assistance to that country's low-income communities. In 1989, Professor Barker's own papers were made part of the Peace Corps Collection at the Kennedy Library. Recently he received the papers of the Program Officer of the United States foreign aid mission to Panama, who worked closely with Barker and other Peace Corps Volunteers in establishing and promoting the legal services program.  This latter group of documents, edited by Barker to show the role of Peace Corps Volunteers, will be integrated into Barker's 1989 submission as part of the Kennedy Library's permanent Peace Corps Collection.
