Scope and Content Notes:
The materials in this series date from 1993 to 1997 and document the process of compiling the images and writing the narrative for The Vietnam War: The Story and the Photographs by Donald Goldstein, Katherine V. Dillon, and J. Michael Wenger. Published in 1997, the pictorial centers on U.S. actions in Vietnam (1959-1975) with a brief overview of the following: the events before the direct involvement of the U.S., the protests in the U.S., and the aftermath of the war. The bulk of the documents are manuscript drafts, which chronicle the development of the manuscript from the original draft to the published version. Images from this pictorial are contained and described in Series XIII: Photographs.
