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.
