Dear Bob Morris: Vietnam maps from the '60s are plentiful in the map
libraries of UCLA and Cornell. These range from Michelin & oil company
maps of the RVN (south) to Defense Dept's complete nearly micro scale maps
of the south up to the DMZ. As for the north, things may be more
difficult, although post war maps will be fairly accurate in that there has
not been extensive renaming of places as has occurred in certain parts of
the south. I would think other university map libraries also have
comparable collections. steve graw
