Lost Notebook
--------------------------------------------
Following Professor Valentine's lecture on poverty in the Peck room
on Wednesday evening (Feb 15), I left my blue spiral notebook with
notes for Theo 514 and Theo 672. Unfortunately it didn't have my name

in it and have looked everywhere for it without success. If you
should come across it please call me on my cell phone 774 930 5320

Thanks,

Robert Bach

end U.S. intervention in Central America in the 1980s and more recently
