Abstract:

Papers of a photographer and writer who was one of the first women foreign correspondents to cover World War II, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and military struggles worldwide, particularly against communism. Her work appeared in Reader's Digest, National Geographic, Look, and Saturday Evening Post. Chapelle was killed in Vietnam in 1965. The bulk of the collection is comprised of drafts, notes, notebooks, photograph captions, and reference material for her articles, and drafts of two autobiographies, Trouble I've Asked For (1960) and What's a Woman Doing Here? (1961) which won the Overseas Press Club's George Polk Memorial Award. An important portion of Chapelle's articles concern Vietnam. There is a small amount of material co-authored by her former husband, Anthony Chapelle, also a photographer, and files on the couple's post-World War II public relations work for the American Friends Service Committee.

Chapelle wrote about the wars and rebellions in Algeria; Cuba, and the anti-Castro forces training in Florida; the Dominican Republic; Greece, Romania, Yugoslavia, and Albania; Hungary, where she was arrested and imprisoned in 1955-1957; India; Iraq; Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and Saipan; Iraq; Jordan; Korea; Laos; Lebanon; the South Pacific; and Turkey. Articles and notes about the United States concern the military, armed forces training, planning and strategy for war, and the Marine Corps. An important portion of Chapelle's articles concern Vietnam. There is a small amount of material co-authored by her former husband, Anthony Chapelle, also a photographer, and files on the couple's post-World War II public relations work for the American Friends Service Committee.
