Ralph F. Turner Papers (UA 17.149) Finding Aid
Item Number: UA171490000000   (Click For More Item Information)
 Collection

Materials in this series reflect Turner's involvement in the MSU Advisory Group (MSUG) in Vietnam. Turner's collection of papers on this project reflect largely the formal workings of the MSUG, and consequently consist largely of reports, publications, articles, briefing information, case studies, meeting minutes, notes, drafts of formal materials, and some correspondence. It is suggested that the researcher consult the series of correspondence for the time period Turner spent in Vietnam as Chief Police Advisor to the Police and Security Service of South Vietnam as part of the MSUG. Please also refer to collection UA 2.9.5.5 (Vietnam Project) and UA 17.95 (Wesley R. Fishel Papers) for a more detailed record of MSU's involvement in Vietnam. This project was established under contract through the Vietnamese Government and the U.S. Operations Mission. Arranged largely alphabetically.
