Scope and Contents note

The records consist of materials related to student demonstrations and strikes from May 1970. Topics of the protests included ROTC, and the war in Indochina or Vietnam. Materials include newspaper clippings, copies of student flyers, as well as press releases. There are also copies of typewritten notes of timeline of events, damage to buildings, and class attendance. There is also a flyer about Bobby Seale in the Bulletins and Announcements folder. These records were originally transferred by the Music Department but the archivist could find no association with the music department. The materials were separated in order to make them more accessible.
