Overview

Clippings from newspapers in the Buffalo, N.Y. area reporting on campus unrest at the State University of New York at Buffalo between 1964 and 1975.

Historical Note

The 1960s and early 1970s saw widespread student activism at colleges and universities worldwide. Academic freedom and participation in university governance, racial and political issues, the Vietnam War, the military draft, and the Nixon administration in the United States were some of the main issues that led to demonstrations, protests, sit-ins, riots, and ultimately the killing of students at Kent State University in Ohio on May 4, 1970. Please see Related Resources below for other collections in the University Archives and also this topical list.
