Biography[edit] David Lamb was born in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated from the University of Maine's School of Journalism in 1962, where he was a member of Beta Theta Pi.[3] He began his career with The Okinawa Morning Star, then moved on to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, and the Oakland Tribune. He then joined United Press International in San Francisco and Denver; from 1968 to 1970, he worked as a battlefront correspondent in Saigon. He joined the Los Angeles Times in 1970 and was based in Los Angeles, New York, and Washington, D.C., as well as being bureau chief in Sydney, Nairobi, Cairo and Hanoi. He covered the fall of Saigon in April 1975 on a temporary assignment for The Los Angeles Times. He was a Nieman Fellow, an Alicia Patterson Journalism Fellow (1985),[4] a Pew Fellow and a writer-in-residence at the University of Southern California's School of Journalism. He is believed to be the only U.S. newspaper correspondent from the Vietnam War to later live in peacetime Hanoi, Vietnam.[5] He married his partner, Sandy Northrop, in Nairobi in 1977.[6]
