Robert Mosher’s Camera

South Vietnam c. 1975

At U.S. diplomatic posts in South Vietnam in April 1975, diplomats and others worked diligently to evacuate staff and at-risk South Vietnamese citizens to safety as the North Vietnamese forces approached.

Robert Mosher was one of those diplomats. He was posted to the U.S. Consulate in Can Tho but was pulled to the Embassy in Saigon to help with the evacuation there. An amateur photographer, Mosher carried this 35MM Nikon film camera with him, capturing some of the helicopter evacuation process while onboard the USS Vancouver.
