Kevin Sailsbury has been with the Vietnam Center and Archive longer than almost any other staff member. A Lubbock native and Texas Tech graduate, he began his employment with the Archive in January of 2000 as a Work Study student lifting heavy boxes to assist with a book exchange program which collected donated books from libraries and schools to send to schools in Vietnam. Kevin now works extensively with the Archive's audio/visual collections by converting old 8mm, 16mm, audiotape and LP's into a digital format which is then added to our Virtual Vietnam Archive where it is searchable and therefore much more accessible to veterans, researchers and scholars around the world. He also acts as the official videographer for all of our events and provides detailed and informative tours to our many patrons. Kevin holds a bachelor's degree in General Studies from Texas Tech University and has obtained 25 hours of graduate work in History and Education.
