Special Collections & University Archives’ materials in “The Vietnam War” Documentary

Archival materials from Special Collections & University Archives were featured in the first episode of Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s documentary The Vietnam War. This episode, titled “Déjà vu (1858-1961),” looks at events in Vietnam leading up to the Vietnam War. The filmmakers used several photographs from the “Archimedes L.A. Patti Research Papers, 1922-1993.” From the Patti collection’s finding aid:

This collection contains the research materials collected by Archimedes L. A. Patti for use in his historical writings. Known for his military career, his work in the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and his relationship with Ho Chi Minh, Patti was recognized later in life as a respected researcher and historian on Indochina affairs. Notes, manuscripts, ephemera, photographs, maps, books and scrapbooks are held in this collection. Of important note are photographs given to Patti by Ho Chi Minh in 1945.

 

The collection includes photographs given to Archimedes Patti by Ho Chi Minh, then Prime Minister of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, documenting famine condition in Vietnam in 1945. Additionally, Patti wrote Why Viet Nam?: Prelude to America’s Albatross, published by the University of California Press in 1980.
