Biographical Note

Timothy D. Allman, journalist, was born in 1944. He received a B.A. from Harvard University in 1966 and did graduate study at Oxford in the 1970s. Allman worked as a freelance foreign correspondent in Southeast Asia from 1968 to 1971, where he did investigative and analytical reporting on the Vietnam War and the outbreak of the Cambodian war. He has contributed articles to numerous newspapers and magazines and has published several books on U.S. foreign policy.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

Draft of Allman's proposed PhD thesis for St Anthony's College, Oxford (never completed) plus his original news dispatches concerning the wars in Indochina, some of which were published in revised form by the Manchester Guardian for which he worked as a stringer at the time. The papers also include correspondence with people at the British Embassy in Vientiane, Laos.

This collection is organized into three series:

Processing of the collection is minimal. Most folder titles have been taken from the titles or notes on the original folders in which the material arrived. The papers are organized loosely into three sections.
