Peace Corps History (pdf)

Coverdell's Peace Corps (pdf)

In January 1989, Paul Coverdell was nominated by President George Bush to serve as Director of the Peace Corps, due in part to his lifelong commitment to humanitarian efforts in the state of Georgia. Coverdell was sworn into office by President Bush in an Oval Office ceremony on May 2, 1989. Coverdell resigned as Peace Corps director in November 1991 to run for a seat in the United States Senate.

The Paul D. Coverdell  Peace Corps Papers contain correspondence, speeches, calendars, reports, notes, articles, photographs and videos and is approximately 20 linear feet. The first several months of Coverdell's directorship are well documented with items such as photographs, meeting notes, travel plans, published articles and briefing papers. Throughout the collection, the files documenting the Peace Corps' appearance in the press is well documented, as is Coverdell's calendar of events, the Office of the Inspector General activities and the World Wise Schools program.

Currently, the Peace Corps Papers are closed.
