David Douglas Duncan: A Vietnam Tribute

During his days of covering Con Thien and Khe Sanh during the Vietnam War, Duncan carried with him a small portable tape recorder to capture the sounds and voices associated with the Marines engaged in those important military operations. The following presentation was compiled and edited from his audio tapes and his still imagery by James Watson and Roy Flukinger and was shown as part of the retrospective exhibition in 1999. It was dedicated to all his fellow U.S. Marines and military who served in Vietnam.

Duncan donated his archive to the Ransom Center in 1996. The archive contains more than 50,000 images, as well as the cameras and other equipment that Duncan used to make some of his greatest photographs.
