The Jean Helen Meadowcroft collection contains significant materials relating to educational assistance programs in Bolivia,
Peru, Guatemala, Lesotho, and Nepal. After serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Bolivia in 1966-1968, Meadowcroft joined
the United States Agency for International Development and worked on a number of agency programs designed to improve education
in poorer countries. The bulk of the collection relates to programs in Bolivia, Lesotho, and Nepal. The collection largely
consists of reports, correspondence, memoranda, and instructional materials. There are also some sound recordings and videorecordings
in the collection.
