Throughout 2011, the Peace Corps has celebrated its 50th anniversary. This is an important milestone for anthropology as well. Anthropologists were directly involved with in its design and implementation, and through the years many anthropologists have regularly joined as volunteers, and former volunteers regularly pursue careers in anthropology. This month’s contributors include Ralph Bolton; Ian Colquhoun, Alex Totomarovario and Andrew Walsh; Scott Freeman; Frank HutchinsRonald A SchwarzKatherine McCardwell; and Veronica Muoio and Michael Sheridan.

Check back to the AN website through December for additional contributions by Kathleen Gillogly, Sean Kois, Courtney Kurlanska, and Jon Wolseth. AN thanks all these contributors who have helped recognize the intricate relationship between anthropology and the Peace Corps as this milestone year comes to a close.

All AN content is available at www.anthropology-news.org during the publication month, plus one month after, and subsequently through AnthroSource. Be sure to rate articles and share your comments on the AN website.
