Historical Note

The records document the activities of a number of protest groups and organizations. M.S.U. Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the most prominent protest organization on campus, was active in virtually every area of protest. Newspaper articles concerning their actions and SDS literature are prevalent throughout the protest files. Also included is coverage of the SDS national convention which was held at M.S.U. in 1968. The Committee for Student Rights (CSR), another protest group, concerned itself solely with student rights. Organizations such as the Black Liberation Front (BLF) and the Black Students Alliance (BSA) surface in civil rights material--mainly concerning racial incidents in residence halls. Also included in the civil rights protests are groups protesting the Chicago Conspiracy trial in 1970. Other groups include, the Committee to Abolish R.O.T.C., United Students, and the Student Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam.

M.S.U. Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), the most prominent protest organization on campus, was active in virtually every area of protest. Newspaper articles concerning their actions and SDS literature are prevalent throughout the protest files. Also included is coverage of the SDS national convention which was held at M.S.U. in 1968. The Committee for Student Rights (CSR), another protest group, concerned itself solely with student rights. Organizations such as the Black Liberation Front (BLF) and the Black Students Alliance (BSA) surface in civil rights material mainly concerning racial incidents in residence halls. Also included in the civil right protests are groups protesting the Chicago Conspiracy trial in 1970. Other groups include, the Committee to Abolish R.O.T.C., United Students, and the Student Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam. Publications include protest newspapers such as National Guardian,  The Student Mobilizer,  LOGOS, and  Swill & Squeal; and  State New articles which cover the major events on campus during this period.
