As reported at the AGM and in monthly UAA Newsletters, the USAID History Project is well underway. Our author John Norris has done vast amounts of research and collected many hundreds of pages of valuable material. He has read every one of the more than a hundred oral histories of retired USAID staff, perused the relevant documents available online in USAID’s Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC), read all the relevant USAID-related news clippings he could find, read many – but not yet all – of the many published books on aspects of USAID’s work, and drawn on many other sources as well.

He has begun to refine the material, starting to turn it into chapters while also working on a book proposal to shop to publishers.  It is apparent, however, that the original highly ambitious goal of a completed manuscript in 18 months was unrealistic.  John now believes he will be able to complete the task by the end of 2019.  Our small UAA Advisory Committee has now reviewed the first four chapters and provided advice and concrete suggestions to complement John’s well-written and very interesting drafts.3D Woman Poster 88 wall Paper Exclusive MXY Wallpaper Mural Decal Indoor

Once again, we want to thank our generous UAA members for their tremendous support for the project. About $210,000 was received from more than 150 donors. We are not seeking any additional contributions at this time.3D Wildbluemen 138 Mauer Murals Mauer Aufklebe Decal Durchbruch AJ WALLPAPER DE Upon the book’s completion we shall review the need for further support which would be designed to promote various post-publication educational activities drawing on the book.
