Vietnam Moratorium Day
One hundred and thirteen individual members of the University faculty resolved on Wednesday morning, October 15, “that the war in Vietnam must not continue” and urged “the rapid and complete withdrawal of the United States forces. Two faculty voted no and six abstained (a few days before, the Student Representative Committee had denounced “the continuing U.S. military aggression in Vietnam”).
Also on Wednesday morning, students manned Vietnam Moratorium “talk tables” at the Main Gate and on 1st and 2nd Avenues, and in the afternoon presented addresses and a panel discussion in Caspary Auditorium. In the evening, more than one hundred students, faculty, and staff chanting “Peace Now”, joined the candlelight procession to the ecumenical service in front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral. – The Rockefeller University News and Notes, October 1969
