Peace Corps

Peace Corps

Nepal’s existing collections of old photographs contain few, if any, photos from locations outside the Kathmandu valley. US Peace Corps volunteers were first sent to Nepal in 1962 and were assigned to jobs outside Kathmandu valley. Almost all of them had cameras and took many photos in the villages and towns they were assigned to. They took their black-and-white photos and color slides home when they returned to the US. Doug Hall, a retired Peace Corps volunteer decided to collect and archive these photographs before they are lost to posterity. The collection now has over 3000 photographs.

    Place: Chainpur
    Description: Bill Hanson met the man (the patient in this photo) in Chainpur. He had agreed to carry Hanson's belongings to Namche; but on the way there, he suffered a toothache. Unable to take the pain, he stopped another man who was also going downhill with a load, and asked him to pull his tooth out.
    And just like that, pliers came out from the other man's pack. Kneeling on a straw mat with a cigarette perched on his lips, the dentist effortlessly pulled out the tooth releasing Hanson's companion from pain.
    And everyone was on their merry way.
