Maurice L. Albertson

One of Albertson's most recognized contributions was his critical role in the formation of the Peace Corps. In 1960-1961, Albertson was the director of the U.S. Congressional study on the Point 4 Youth Corps, which led to creation of the Peace Corps. Albertson and two colleagues, Pauline Birkey and Andrew Rice, co-authored the book, "New Frontiers for American Youth - Perspective on the Peace Corps," which set up the basic design for the Peace Corps.
