    As I understand it Dr. Tran Minh Quan owned a farm in Dalat on which he produced fresh vegetables for the US troops.

    I was hoping Google would give me more information about the farm but all I came up with was the photographer's name, Kenneth Slosberg.

    The doctors employees were Vietnames refugees who used both old and new farming techniques.

    These young men fill a basket with produce. I bet he was proud of that hat!

    Peasant women weed and hoe the irrigated fields.

    I am pleased to say that I received an e mail from Dr. Tran Minh Quan's son. He tells me that the farm is now Government owned after his family left in 1969. Dr. Tran Minh Quan's son now lives in the United States and visited the farm again in 2004.

    I have asked him to tell his experiences here.
