Short biography
Ellen Joy Hammer was born in New York City and graduated from Barnard College in 1941. She worked for a few years on the research staff of the Council on Foreign Relations and earned a doctorate in public law and government from Columbia University, where she specialized in international relations. In the early 1950s, she became known as an expert on French colonial rule in Indochina. She was one of the first Americans to become scholars of Vietnamese history, often traveling to there for extended periods. Her first book, The Struggle for Indochina (1954), became a classic text for journalists and other scholars. Her book A Death in November: America in Vietnam, 1963 (1987) was carefully researched among sources including classified American government cables that detailed American involvement in the downfall of President Ngô Đình Diem.
