Scope and Content

The Graphics Collection comprises of printed graphic material documenting the various aspects of Vietnam Culture and Society before, during and after the conflict. The material covers military, political, diplomatic, social and cultural aspects in Vietnam to a larger extent and Southeast Asia to a lesser extent. There are many images of war from the period of United States involvement in the conflict to the Socialist Republic of Vietnam's involvement in Kampuchea. There are also many images on the POW/MIA situation, Science and Technology, the N.LF., P.A.V.N., A.R.V.N. and propaganda techniques. Specifically, this collection compliments the Vietnam Archives' Photograph Collection though it relates to nearly every other collection housed in the Vietnam Archives. The Graphics Collection consists of 26 linear foot of images. The boxes and folders are arranged by subject heading and then alphabetized. The graphics date from the 1950s to the 1990 with the majority in the 1960s. The major categories for the subject headings are: Anti-War, Cambodia, Chronology, Country, DRV (includes the SRV), Military/Diplomacy, Miscellaneous, People, POW/MIA, Propaganda, Science and Technology, Society and Culture, SVN, Urban and USA. While there is duplication within the collection, much of it is divided among the major subject headings.

Biographical Note

Dr. 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 the University of California at Berkeley and in 1997 moved Texas Tech University. Dr. 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 Dr. 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.
