Charley Stough’s Cartoons

Charley Stough

Charley Stough

Charley Stough was a Peace Corps volunteer in Panama in the mid-1960s.

His cartoons about Peace Corps life were published by Peace Corps — before there was a La Vaina.

After Peace Corps, Charley was a writer and author, artist, and self-described “chief copyboy” with the Dayton Daily News.

He retired in 2002 and sent his cartoons to Peace Corps Panama Friends to archive on our website. He died November 22, 2011, as a result of complications from cancer treatment.

March 31, 2002In our retirement move to Texas, I came
across a volume of cartoons I did c. 1965 for the Panama City bulletin board. Dave Boubion got them printed at USIS.  Grupos 1-9 or so may recall them.
Nothing fancy, just ballpoint pen on typing paper, but fun looks at PCV life, Panamanian politics, the Canal Zone and all that.  Abrazos to all,
Charley Stough, Pma VI

Charley’s note:The PC medic pulled me aside and wanted to do some coaching when I posted the Suicide cartoon. He didn’t get the joke.

Vehicle

New Vehicle

Charley’s note: I think “new vehicle” was first of the series.

VIP

Charley’s note:The “VIP” one was after VP Hubert Humphrey’s sister breezed through my site in a line of limos, hours late. Villagers called hubbies home from work, cleaned furiously, lined up kids, and she ignored everybody. The light was fading and the film wouldn’t
come out.
