Craig Pollock

Craig Pollock died in January 1972. He was hiking in the Andes near Columbia for the National Geographic while also serving in the Peace Corps. During his two years in the Peace Corps, he lived in Columbia, Peru, Chile, and Ecuador. His last place of residence was in Otavalo, Ecuador where he helped artisanos to develop artist cooperatives to sell their arts and crafts to the public.

      I am John Pollock, Craig’s older brother. I believe we met in Atlanta at Craig’s memorial service in 1972.

      The sister who visited you in Vail might be either Mary, five years younger than Craig, or more likely, Amy, who is about 11 years younger than Craig.

      Don’t hesitate to write me at

      Thanks for being such a good friend to my beloved brother,
