MAY 4 COLLECTION -- Box 93

1 slim document case, .16 cubic ft., 11th floor

Professor J. Charles Walker donated this material to the University Archives in the early 1970's.

Professor Walker was an instructor in the School of Art in May of 1970. He currently is a full professor in the School of Art and also Coordinator of the Design Studio. After the shootings of May 4, the University was closed by court injunction, and it remained closed for the duration of the spring quarter. Special arrangements were subsequently made in each academic department for students to complete coursework. In the case of the Art Department, mimeographed letters were sent to students' home addresses offering them alternate ways either to receive partial credit or withdraw from the course. In large part, this collection consists of the student responses to the forms that he sent out in the weeks following the shootings.

This collection will be of value to researchers examining student and faculty attitudes in the period following May 4, 1970. Students returning their forms often wrote notes concerning the shootings and their feelings on the closing of the University.
