Peter Aizupitis '61

Peter Aizupitis '61, a radio broadcaster who reported on current events in Latvian for Voice of America, died May 28, 2017.

At age 4, Peter was forced to leave his native Latvia with his family; they arrived in the U.S. in 1952 after spending time in a displaced-persons camp in Germany. An avid soccer player and coach for daughter Klara ’14, Peter called Swarthmore “the best years of his life.”
