Over three linear feet of photographs, postcards, VHS tapes, audio reels, periodicals, and research materials document a deep understanding of various aspects of the POW/MIA issue. All materials were collected by Malcolm McConnell in his research for his work, 'Inside Hanoi's Secret Archives: Solving the MIA Mystery', manuscripts of which are in the collection. The 1634 photographs are former PAVN photos. These photographs, numerous declassified U.S. documents, PAVN documents, and correspondence date from the war period.
Other collections that relate to the POW/MIA issue include the U.S. Air Force POW Oral Histories Collection, the interrogation reports in the Douglas Pike Collection, the Shirley Johnson Collection, and areas of the National Vietnam Veteran's Coalition papers.
