Richard L. Clarkson Collection (2099) Finding Aid
Item Number: 20990000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

Approximately two linear feet of mostly personnel and organizational records document the activities of the Army Concept Team in Vietnam (ACTIV) primarily from 1969-1971 and its research laboratory in Aberdeen, Maryland known as the Land Warfare Laboratory (LWL) from 1961-1974. This was the army's quick-reaction research and development group. The LWL records are the only copy remaining of the complete work-product of LWL from its inception in about 1961 through its closure in 1974. The legacy of LWL/ACTIV is still apparent today. A very small group was responsible for the initial ^D'invention^D>' of bomb-sniffing dogs, sophisticated electronics, simple chemical devices like light-sticks, and a host of other quick solutions to field problems. They were purposely exempted from standard R & D research rules, and were, therefore, unencumbered by bureaucracy, budget constraints, rigid organizational turf battles, and procurement policies. LWL/ACTIV was staffed by no more than 144 individuals who were brilliant scientists, and support personnel such as metallurgists, model makers, and researchers among others.

James M. Carter Collection (3078) Finding Aid
Item Number: 30780000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

The collection consists of approximately one linear foot of materials accumulated by Dr. James M. Carter during his research for his book Inventing Vietnam. The materials are predominately the papers of the private consortium RMK-BRJ and they deal with every aspect of the military construction project undertaken to accommodate major American escalation of the Vietnam War after 1964 (known as Contract NBy-44105). The materials include memos and correspondence (e.g. re: award fees, audit reports, contract evaluations, specific construction projects); contracts and agreements (including changes); DOD procurement circulars; periodicals; evaluation reports; books; a diary of Contract NBy-44105; articles, excerpts, and clippings; a contractor's fee proposal; and completion reports. The materials are dated 1962-1972, 1989, and 2008.

RMK-BRJ was an American construction consortium of four of the largest American companies (Raymond International, Inc., Morrison-Knudsen International, Inc., Brown & Root, Inc., and J.A. Jones Construction Co., Inc.) put together by the United States Navy during the Vietnam War to build critically needed infrastructure in South Vietnam so that the U.S. could escalate the introduction of American combat troops and materiel into Vietnam. This construction contract, amounting to $1.9 billion, completed a construction program deemed to be the largest in history up to that time.

Over the ten-year life of the contract, RMK-BRJ trained 200,000 Vietnamese workers in construction and administrative trades. The use of a civilian contractor and construction force in an active theater of combat operations was authorized for the first time in U.S. history.
