Thinking of Jobs I Have Had – And Former Colleagues

Colleagues at the U.S. Library of Congress Field Office, Nairobi Kenya, early 1990’s

I am in the process of going through old photographs and documents which I have collected over the years. In the early 1990’s we were living and working in Nairobi Kenya. I was very fortunate to make contact with the U. S, Library of Congress Field Office and to work there for several years. I learned so much and enjoyed my work environment. Pictured above are some of my colleagues at that time. You’ll note that most of my colleagues were Kenyan. The exception was my boss, the head of the office. She was American but a long term resident of Kenya. We shared many interests and she was a supportive boss/supervisor and teacher and friend.

I was going through some old files today and I found a clipping of interest here.
