Before he left for South Asia to research Canadian Aid, in 1960, Keith Spicer bought a camera. The pictures he brought back are par tof the family collection. His son Dag digitized them and, at our request, helped his father identify them. They have never been published. The research performed by Dr. Spicer would become the foundation of his thesis and laid the groundwork for what would become CUSO (initially known as the Canadian Overseas Volunteers). The captions on each image are quotes provided by Dr. Spicer.
