Series VII: Demonstrations, 1920s-2000s

Newspaper and magazine clippings, press releases, flyers, and other printed matter concerned with demonstrations and protests of Columbia students, faculty, and staff. Demonstrations address many national and international events, including South Africa divestment, Clarence Thomas Supreme Court hearings, civil rights and abortion. Although there is one folder on the topic of the 1968 crisis on campus, most information about the 1968 demonstrations and subsequent take over of campus buildings can be found in a stand alone collection,University Protest and Activism Collection, 1958-1999 (bulk dates 1968-1972). Folders are arranged alphabetically and chronologically.
