Scope and Content

Unit 8 of the Douglas Pike Collection contains information on biography of major figures during the Vietnam Conflict. The 27 linear feet are arranged alphabetically according to the first letter of the surname. Individual folders have not been further alphabetized by entire surname though there are plans to complete this process in the future. There are a few exceptions to the rule (when the amount of material on an individual was significant) and those are listed in the box inventory. Box 20-25 contain general lists of individual (sometimes with more complete biography) and is divided by subject. Boxes 26 and 27 contain book-form published directories of individuals from a variety of sources. The material is in good-fair 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.
