Catharine W. Menninger was an active member of PTPI in our early years. She wrote various reports about the organization.

Here is another one of her commentaries:

The second conference was the People to People 10th Anniversary Conference held in Kansas City October 6-8, 1966, attended by some 600 members and observers from more than half the states, Korea, Denmark, India, and England.

President Eisenhower addressed the conference. Bob Hope received the 1966 People to People National Distinguished Service Award for his personification of the People to People concept. A Distinguished Service Award was presented to DeWitt Wallace, owner of “Readers Digest” for distinguished service on behalf of People to People program and for advancing the cause of international understanding and friendship among the people of the world through the written word. Walt Disney was honored for his role in advancing the People to People program through motion pictures and television.
