Scope and Content

There is less than one linear foot of material in this collection with date ranges from 1972-1979. There are only a few documents from the 1972, 1978, and 1979 period. There are major gaps in the publications throughout the collection, especially toward the beginning and end of the collection. The content of the material is similar to the Foreign Broadcast Information Service, except that a major of the items which appear in Radio-TV Defense Dialog are from United States sources. The material is in good condition.

Biographical Note

Professor Pike was born in 1925. He served as a journalist in the Army during World War II (in the Pacific Theater of Operations) and during the Korean Conflict. He earned degrees from the University of California-Berkeley and American University. He served as an FSO in Taiwan, Korea, Lebanon, and Vietnam. In 1982 he began teaching at UC-Berkeley and in 1997 moved Texas Tech University. Professor Pike housed and supported the Collection until 1982 when he moved it to Berkeley. It remained there until 1992 when Berkeley considered discontinuing its support for the Indo-China Studies Project. After being approached by Professor Pike, Dr. James Reckner, Director of the Vietnam Center at Tech, and Dr. David Murrah, Assistant Director of Libraries for the Special Collections, worked together to bring the Collection to the Archive in 1994.
