Paul Cecil Collection (252) Finding Aid
Item Number: 2520000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

Approximately seven and a half linear feet of books, photographs, slides, museum objects, film, audio, periodicals, microfilm, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, journals, studies, oral history transcripts, and official military materials document a broad range of topics related to Operation Ranch Hand, the Ranch Hand Association and issues related to herbicidal usage during the Vietnam Conflict. Topics include support for and against the use of herbicides, studies conducted on the use of herbicides, lawsuits against its use, Veterans Administration treatment of Vietnam Veterans, their objections with the United States government and chemical and germ warfare.

Materials of interest in this collection are the DAAR Reports, or Daily Air Activity Reports for Operation Ranchhand. These daily reports show the map coordinates of spray missions, the type of agent used, number of gallons sprayed, number of hits the spray aircraft sustained during the mission and grid coordinates of the enemy fire, flying conditions experienced during the mission, and if the mission was aborted the reason(s) why. The units mentioned in the report are the: 309th Air Command Squadron, 315th Air Commando Group, 12th Airborne Command and Control Squadron, and the 12th Special Operations Squadron. Also included with the reports are handwritten notes.

Materials in this collection date from 1960 to the present and are primarily organized in their original order.
