Series III: Alumni and Parents, 1968-1971
Correspondence, memoranda, flyers, notices, and other public statements
created by alumni and parental organizations are contained in this series.
The former include alumni associations and alumni groups organized on the
basis of identity and issues. The materials contained within the files for
these organizations reflect alumni views on the student unrest at Columbia,
the University’s response, and its potential restructuring. Letters from
individual alumni to the associations, the report by Alumni Federation
President Laurence E. Walsh, and public statements and publications by
alumni groups are particularly useful sources. Alumni groups also addressed
high profile topics, including the Vietnam War. Documentation produced by
parental groups relates to the 1968 student upheaval at Columbia and its
consequences, and, to a much lesser extent, anti-war activism. Materials
found in Box 73 are part of Accession
