A conversation with OWR Member J.T. Turner who is the Founding Director of Peacehenge and Barbara Gaughen-Muller.  Barbara is the president of the Santa Barbara and Tri-County chapter of the United Nations Association.
 
Barbara was inspired by her late husband, Dr. Robert  Muller, former United Nations Assistant Secretary-General.

Originally from Britain, J.T. came to the US in the 1970s. He is academically trained in Social Anthropology and Clinical Psychology and holds masters degrees from Cambridge, and Fielding in those two fields.
