BOX 43-52 Diane Carlson Evans File, 1983-2020
The Diane Carlson Evans File contains correspondence, as well as drafts of her speeches, interviews, awards, curricula vitae, photographs, and publications in her role as VWMF founder, president, and CEO of its board. These documents are largely records that Evans maintained at her home, particularly in the years immediately following the founding of the VWMF, and which supplement those of the organization. The majority of the series comprises incoming and outgoing correspondence concerning the project's development, invitations to speak, and letters from the public, including from children, thanking her for her service and for her efforts to honor the women who served in Vietnam. Other files contain speeches and interviews Evans gave to local and national news networks, veterans' organizations, congressional committees and federal agencies, and universities and schools in paper, video, and audio formats. Barring a few photographs, very few files refer to her personal life, nursing career, or military service.
Material types include correspondence, certificates, awards, photographs, transcripts of statements and testimonies, publications, clippings, and press releases. Some of the news clips, interviews, and speeches are in digital format as video and audio files.
Arranged alphabetically by subject or type of material and thereunder chronologically. The file structure of the digital content maintained as received.
