The George Tanham Papers comprise the research files generated by George Tanham, a U.S. diplomat who was an expert in the politics of South Asia and Southeast Asia. Tanham's files are mostly printed materials and manuscripts about various countries, such as Afghanistan, China, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand, and Vietnam. Materials regarding counterinsurgency, foreign relations, international politics, nuclear policy, and other topics are included. Most of the documents are secondary sources. A portion of the personal papers of Georgetown University professor Jules Davids is also contained in the Tanham Papers. Davids' files include oral history interview transcripts and rough drafts in conjunction with his proposed book project about W. Averell Harriman: "Harriman: The Truman Years, History and Memory" (1986).
