A set of personal papers documenting Alan Hochstetler's voluntary service work in Vietnam and Korea under the auspices of Mennonite Central Committee (MCC). The papers consist primarily of correspondence from Hochstetler to his family in Nappanee, Indiana. The letters provide a lot of detail about the daily work and activities of Hochstetler and other MCC volunteers. In his correspondence, Hochstetler also discusses the weather, major political events, and his relationships with his fellow voluntary service workers.
Other materials in this collection include correspondence from MCC and the selective service, slides and photographs taken during his service work, photographs taken during a 1997 trip to Vietnam, clippings, a Vietnam diary, a hand drawn map of the Leprosarium, the Tidings of the Banmethouoat Leprosarium, a service certificate from MCC, and a nine-page manuscript containing personal reflections and recollections of his service work and his return trips to Vietnam.
