From the Director
The month of May finds one of the MSPP
staff, either Nancy or me, visiting the islands in preparation for the arrival in June of
most of the technical assistants. This visit is to assure that the parameters of the
projects are well-defined, that counterparts are ready to work with the TAs, and that
housing has been secured for the TAs. . .

1995, Kelly has worked in several places, from the extremes of New York to New Zealand to
