Arthur Howe, Jr.: From Watertown to the World with AFS

AFS World War II volunteer, president, and life trustee Arthur “Art” Howe, Jr. had a significant impact on people and communities around the globe. Driven by his desire to help others, Art traveled the world, discovering new cultures and meeting new friends while embarking on important work with AFS. For him, interacting with different people around the world was a way to promote open discussion, mutual understanding, and ultimately, peace.

Arthur Howe, Jr.: From Watertown to the World with AFS is an online exhibition using historic photographs, documents, and items preserved in the AFS Archives, which enable you to follow in the footsteps on some of his many adventures as a lifelong and passionate AFSer, discovering the world through his eyes and words.
