Overview Letters written by Stephen Soroka, 1967-1972 and 1980-1981, to State University of New York at Buffalo history professor Orville T. Murphy. Of particular interest are his observations of life and politics in Kenya, Tanzania, and Rhodesia while serving in the Peace Corps. In his personal response to the political concerns of the late 1960's and early 1970's, Soroka is representative of the thinking of a significant segment of the American public of that period.
