Queens College Campus Unrest Collection

Description

The Queens College Campus Unrest Collection contains papers, correspondence, and flyers regarding the Spring 1969 sit-in protest of the social science building by the Ad Hoc Committee to End Political Suppression. The protest was in defense of the three members of the Students for a Democratic Society who were arrested and charged for leading a protest for the removal of General Electric recruiters from QC campus. The sit-in lasted four days resulting in the arrests of thirty-eight students and one faculty member, who were all charged with trespassing, despite the continued demands for amnesty to the administration from the SDS and the AHCEPS.
