Title:
Faculty protesting George Rockwell speech
Date:
1967-02-08
Description:
George Rockwell founded the American Nazi Party in 1959 and led it until his assassination in August of 1967. Lawrence students invited Rockwell to speak at Lawrence in the winter of 1966/67. Though college administrators discouraged the idea, they ultimately (and controversially) stood behind the students' right to hear Rockwell speak. He addressed an audience of Lawrence students and faculty in Memorial Chapel on February 8, 1967.
