Remember the Bamboo Beacon Newsletter?

What Saigon Kid was the Editor of the Bamboo Beacon?

What news story did they ‘scoop’ before the rest of the world news media?

Does anyone have a copy of the Bamboo Beacon?

    In 1962 Frank Durham was the business manager and news editor of the Bamboo Beacon. Bobbie Sheehan was the assistant editor. Michele Laughlin was the editor in 1963 – It got its start in 1961, but I don’t know who the editor was then.

    I served on the staff in 1963, but do not have any copies of it saved. We had fun putting it together.
