His surname is Nguyen istead of Thieu. — Instantnood 05:18, Jun 3, 2005 (UTC)

Vietnamese are known by their last given name, not their family name. Cripipper 17:42, 31 December 2006 (UTC)

was this person a US citizen (Vietnamese American) or not (a refugee or expatriate in the US)? Article and categories should show this. Thanks Hmains 02:59, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject Religion?[edit]

"This article is within the scope of WikiProject Religion..."

This is the biography of a political figure! How did it wind up in a religion section and how do we fix that? Rasp (talk) 22:28, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Orphaned references in Nguyễn Văn Thiệu[edit]

I check pages listed in Category:Pages with incorrect ref formatting to try to fix reference errors. One of the things I do is look for content for orphaned references in wikilinked articles. I have found content for some of Nguyễn Văn Thiệu's orphans, the problem is that I found more than one version. I can't determine which (if any) is correct for this article, so I am asking for a sentient editor to look it over and copy the correct ref content into this article.

I apologize if any of the above are effectively identical; I am just a simple computer program, so I can't determine whether minor differences are significant or not. AnomieBOT 08:33, 19 July 2010 (UTC)

Family[edit]

The article is incorrect. This man had twin daughters who attended Mt. Holyoke College and one son who attended Amherst College (which is how he came to live in Mass.). And immediately following the fall of Saigon, the US govt relocated him (paid about $150,000 - which was a ton of money in 1975 - for a house in Hawaii. I went to college with his daughters so I know a few things about this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 206.163.60.15 (talk) 13:42, 16 February 2012 (UTC)

RfC on Vietnamese diacritics[edit]

RfC: Should the spelling of Vietnamese names follow the general usage of English-language reliable sources? Examples: Ngo Dinh Diem, Ho Chi Minh, and Saigon, or Ngô Đình Diệm, Hồ Chí Minh, and Sài Gòn. The RfC is here. Kauffner (talk) 21:31, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

Alleged reclusiveness[edit]

This article's assertion that Thieu in exile shunned the media is not completely correct. Throughout the 1980s that was the case, but I recall a number of interviews he gave in the 1990s. He also wrote articles for TIME magazine once or twice, calling for a return to democracy in Vietnam, and made some clandestine attempts to bring dissidents together in exile (but found that many of them wanted to keep their distance from him). I will try to find a few sources. David Cannon (talk)
