This 50th Anniversary book published by 1961 RPCVs in the Philippines, Answering Kennedy's Call: Pioneering the Peace Corps in the Philippines is a collection of essays by early volunteers who reflect on their motivations for joining the new and untested organization, their experience in rural communities, and the impact of the experience in their lives. In announcing the book, Ethiopia RPCV Marian Haley Beil, of Peace Corps Writers, said: "It is a book that will be loved by those who contributed to it, will provide much to researchers looking at what the Peace Corps was all about in its early years, and will be a wonderful resource for those interested in the Peace Corps as a life choice.
