Two linear feet of seventy studies and reports were prepared by the Michigan State University Vietnam Advisory Group. The reports cover various topics dealing with training and consultation for nation-building programs initiated by the Eisenhower Administration and carried over into the Kennedy Administration. Included topics are budgetary and fiscal systems, village life and administrative organization. The materials date 1954-1963, with most of the studies coming from the late 1950s.
