VIETNAM PHOTOGRAPHS: 50 YEARS AGO
A collection of 34 photographs taken in 1967 in South Vietnam is on display in the Forbes Library lobby through the end of October.
These photographs were taken in Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam, in 1967, by a photographer with the United States Information Agency. Quang Ngai is the 5th province south of the De-militarized Zone that once divided South and North Vietnam. In 1967 David Entin was an Assistant Provincial Representative with the United States Agency for International Development and took the photographer around the province for a day or two in order to photograph these scenes. David lives at Rocky Hill Cohousing in Northampton and served as the Vice President for Academic Affairs at Holyoke Community College before his retirement. These photographs were donated by David to the University of Massachusetts and are now part of the David Entin Papers at the Special Collections and University Archives, UMass Amherst. These photographs are part of a larger collection and are on loan for this exhibit.
