Author Biography

A recent retiree now living in Vernon, British Columbia, Andy Buhler has weathered 25 years as a medical laboratory technologist around the country and another 12 years as a specialist medical librarian. His move from employment in Victoria, BC to retirement in Vernon, BC turned up a stored box of air letters written during a two-year stint with CUSO in Nigeria. In 1969 he was a recently certified medical lab technologist testing the waters as a salesman for a biomedical supply company. Sales were not found to be his forte but general bench technology seemed too restraining for him. The option of working overseas in a developing country arose. CUSO was looking for recruits. That option looked like it could become an exciting foreign adventure and an opportunity to hone his fledgling technical skills. That adventure was what had been saved in the newly discovered box of air letters. Although Andy has edited birding newsletters and journals and has put out a limited-edition cookbook, this is his first venture into the publishing of a memoir.
