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.
