Douglas Pike Collection: Unit 03 - POW/MIA Issues (220) Finding Aid
Item Number: 2200000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

This contains data from both sides regarding interments, treatment in the camps, repatriation, prisoner testimony, sighting reports, data on the resolution of the MIA issue. This section contains printed material documenting POW's/MIA's during and after the Vietnam Conflict. The main focus is on American POW's/MIA's but North and South Vietnamese prisoners are also covered. The types of sources included follow the trends of the issue. The majority of the General Literature, which includes government documents and official accounts as opposed to Clippings which focuses on the articles produced by the press, written during the time of the Conflict was published by U.S. government agencies. Congressional hearings, committee reports and research requests on the subject of POW's occurred early in the conflict and continued until 1993 when Dr. Pike stopped gathering material for the unit. Few government agencies pursued the POW/MIA matter as consistently and dilligently as Congress. The Department of Defense, Defense Intelligence Agency, and Central Intelligence Agency produced papers on POW's and MIA's and sanitized sighting reports can be found throughout. Except for one major exception, there is very little material from these sources between 1975 to 1980. The Department of Defense published an exhaustive 15 volume study covering personnel, PW camps, gravesites and crashsites in 1978. In the 1980's when the POW/MIA issue again fell under public scrutiny, these agencies released reports and short letters in response to charges made by the press or POW/MIA groups. Much of the material produced by U.S. government agencies consisted of JUPAO, USIS, FBIS,and USIA bulletins attacking the treatment of U.S. POW's. The North Vietnamese countered these claims with their own newspaper and radio reports,which have been transcripted, on the conditions of the POW's . Once the conflict ended the government's information agencies concentrated on other subject and it fell to civilian groups such as the National League of Families of American Prisoners and Missing in South East Asia to focus attention on the POW/MIA issue. They circulated newsletters designed to bring awareness of the POW/MIA issue to the public and pressure Congress to stay involved. Secondary sources, such as domestic newspapers and magazines, cover the major trends of the issue including early releases of prisoners by the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese, conditions of the prisoners, peace talks, Son Tay, Operation Homecoming, the return of Marine PFC Garwood, and reports of living POW's and hoaxes in the 1980's-90's
