Series VII: Vietnam War, 1944-2001

Scope and Content Note

As with the series on Race and Civil Rights, this series contains background/research material on Southeast Asia and US involvement in Vietnam, as well as a great deal of material documenting Zinn’s own participation in the anti-war movement. Of particular interest are his travels to various anti-war conferences in Japan in 1966 and to Vietnam in 1968 and 1972, especially his Hanoi trip with Rev. Daniel Berrigan to receive prisoners released by the North Vietnamese. This is a large series with many articles, clippings, notebooks, photographs and publications. Materials extend through 2001 documenting post-war activities and influences.

A smaller subseries contains items relating to the release of the Pentagon Papers and Zinn’s involvement with Daniel Ellsberg and Anthony Russo, including copies of court documents, hearing transcripts, and the Gravel Edition of The Pentagon Papers.
