Materials relating to the collection sound recordings

Scope and Contents note

Correspondence and miscellany relating to Lansdale's collection of music from Vietnam.

Senior Liaison Office staff and friends, 1965-1975

Scope and Contents note

While in Saigon, General Lansdale and other members of the Senior Liaison Office (SLO) staff invited Vietnamese and American musicians to record at 194 Cong Ly, where the staff was quartered. Some members of the SLO staff were themselves musicians. Ambassador Lodge and Premier Nguyen Kao Ky are heard from time to time, as are other government and military figures. Frequently recorded individuals include Vietnamese composer Pham Duy, American folksinger Steve Addis, USAID Provincial Operations Director Colonel Sam Wilson, SLO volunteer Bernie Yoh, southern province advisor Captain Hershel Gober, and career Foreign Service officer Jim Bullington.
Colonel Sam Wilson was a close friend of General Lansdale's and had been on Lansdale's Special Operations staff at the Pentagon. Later, he became a Lieutenant General in the U.S. Army, after serving as U.S. Military Attache in Moscow, director of the Military Intelligence Agency, and Deputy Director of the CIA.
Bernie Yoh was an unpaid volunteer with the SLO. Yoh was Chinese and a close friend of Archbishop Yu-peng. He had run the Shanghai "net" for Americans in World War II and was introduced to Lansdale by Ngo Dinh Diem in 1955. While in his teens, Yoh conducted the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra.
Captain Hershel Gober was an infantry adviser in Rach Gia, on the Gulf of Siam, on the southern coast of Vietnam. He had served in Germany under Colonel Sam Karrick. Colonel Karrick had served on Lansdale's staff at TRIM (MAAG-Vietnam) in 1954 to 1955 and was with the SLO from 1965 to 1967.
Jim Bullington was a Foreign Service Officer, stationed as a Consular officer in Hue. At the time of the first songs, he was an aide to Ambassador Lodge.
A few tapes were recorded after General Lansdale had returned to the United States. The tapes are arranged in approximate chronological order, and English song titles are listed whenever possible.
