Beverly Deepe was the first woman to be a full-time correspondent in Vietnam. In 1964, Deepe exposed a rift between U.S. Ambassador Maxwell Taylor and South Vietnam’s leadership, which put her at odds with U.S. Embassy staff.

“They don’t like me because I won’t say what they want me to say.”

Deepe’s time covering the war is featured in “Reporting Vietnam,” a new exhibit that marks the 50th anniversary of the start of America’s first televised war and explores the dramatic stories of how journalists brought news about the war to a divided nation.

Contributing support for the “Reporting Vietnam” exhibit is provided by CBS Corporation, in memory of CBS News correspondent Bob Simon.
