Ruth Kesselring Royal '61

Ruth Kesselring Royal published a compilation of letters she and fellow alumna Beryl A. Brinkman ’62, who passed away in 2007, exchanged while involved in the Peace Corps. Royal’s book, titled “Never Gonna Cease My Wanderin’: Letters Between Friends,” (Peace Corps Writers, 2012) gives insight into the Peace Corps when it first began, the Philippines in the 1960s and the developing friendship between the two women. The two met while attending North Central. They began exchanging letters while Royal was in the Philippines, continuing this tradition throughout the 1960s.
