URL: http://www.expcvsbrazil.com/

Description: The Peace Corps Brazil site was launched in July 2000, to bring together the Returned Peace Corps Volunteers (RPCV) who served in Brazil between 1962 and 1980. According to the official Peace Corps website, 4,150 volunteers served in Brazil, many of which worked in community development programs, between 1962 and 1981 when it was officially shuttered due to the increasingly strained political relationship between Brazil and the United States. The Peace Corps Brazil site contains several back issues of the Friends of Brazil newsletter and the Chopp Talk newsletter, Peace Corps Brazil reunion information, information on RPCVs organized by state, group, and staff, RPCV and staff news, photos, stories, and histories of the Peace Corps in Brazil. The website was donated in June 2015 to the American University Library Peace Corps Community Archive by Gene Whitmer, who began and maintained the site until it was shut down in July 2015.
