Hi all!

For the last few months I've been working on a project in collaboration
with the Pacifica Radio Archives. The project has involved digitizing
Pacifica audio recordings related to the anti-war (Vietnam) movement in the
SF Bay Area and elsewhere. In the course of putting together the web site
that provides access to these recordings, the project got a bit more
ambitious: it includes a chronology of events that links to both audio and
video files, photographs, and other media.

The web site is at http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/pacificaviet/

This is the third installment of an on-going collaboration between Pacifica
and Berkeley to digitize audio materials relating to social activism in the
60s and 70s. Earlier efforts include a site devoted to the Berkeley Free
Speech Movement (http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/pacificafsm.html) and the
Black Panther Party (http://www.lib.berkeley.edu/MRC/pacificapanthers.html)

I think this material will be useful to anyone doing research on these topics.

Let me know what you think!
