Early life

Chandler was born in the United States in 1933.[3] He has earned degrees from Harvard College; Yale University; and the University of Michigan, where he wrote his dissertation on pre-colonial Cambodia.[4]


Chandler was a United States Foreign Service officer from 1958–66,[3] serving in Phnom Penh (1960–62), Bogotá, Santiago de Cali, and Washington, D.C. He has held professorial positions at Monash University, University of Wisconsin–Madison, Johns Hopkins University, and Cornell University.[4] He has been a Senior Advisor at the Center for Khmer Studies in Siem Reap; a USAID consultant evaluating Cambodia's democracy and governance programs; an Asia Foundation consultant assessing Phnom Penh election activities. He has also accompanied Amnesty International and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees on Cambodian research and fact finding missions, and has been a researcher in Cambodia archives for the U.S. Department of Defense Office of POW/MIA Affairs.


A room in the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh is named in his honor.[3] In 1994 he was elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities.
