One Year Update: Orderly Departure Program Digitization Update

Digitization of the Orderly Departure Program (ODP) Application Files of the FVPPA/VAHF collection began one year ago today, on February 1st, 2012.  Work on the project has proceeded at an incredible pace, with 67 of the 124 boxes completely digitized and available online, totaling 6,969 application files – 146,388 pages of material.

This three year projected, funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), is projected to make available online 250,000 pages of materials documenting the immigration experience of Vietnamese to the United States following the end of the war in Vietnam.   All of these files are accessible through the Virtual Vietnam Archive, and you can keep up with the project on our project page.
