Bertram S. Allen, Jr. Papers, 1969-1970


The Bertram S. Allen, Jr. Papers, held by the Archives of Appalachia at East Tennessee State University, document Allen's military service (1968-1970) with the United States Army's 25th Division during the Vietnam War and provides information about the history of the 25th Division. The collection contains copies of documents and photographs from Allen's scrapbook. The photocopies include a few pages from Tropic Lightning: A History of the 25th Infantry Division; a letter, dated 30 January 1969, to PFC Bertram S. Allen, Jr., from his father; and articles written by Allen for Tropic Lightning News in 1969. The copied photographs portray Allen, fellow soldiers, and Vietnamese civilians. Some of the photographs were taken in 1969 or 1970, while the remainder are undated.

The current digital collection includes surrogates of the complete content of the collection.
