Southeast Asian Studies Center, 1961+
[Back to Formatted Version]
Brief Description:

The Center for Southeast Asian Studies records are a subgroup within the Academic Centers record group of the University Archives.  There are two series in the collection:  Southeast Asian Center materials and Peace Corps records which are further divided into specific programs (ex. Malaya).

The records primarily date from 1961 to 1967, with newsletters from the Southeast Asian Studies Center continuing to the present time.  Correspondence and reports document the Center's history.  The Peace Corps records contain correspondence from all over the world detailing the establishment of training programs on the NIU campus as well as reports, proposals, and financial records.  The largest sub-series documents the Malaya and Thailand Training Programs.  Orientation aids, reports, and correspondence reveal a great deal of information on the health status and political make-up of Thailand, Malaysia, and the Phillippines.  The collection is an excellent source for political science research.
