Vietnam War Teach-In Records
Correspondence, newspaper clippings, statements, and reports related to the three Vietnam War teach-ins held at Rutgers in 1965. Items addressing Professor Eugene Genovese's remarks at the first teach-in and the University's subsequent handling of the matter represent the bulk of the collection. Also included are materials relating to the 1965 New Jersey Gubernatorial campaign. Republican candidate Senator Wayne Dumont demanded Genovese's removal from the University and focused on the issue in his campaign. Democratic candidate Governor Richard J. Hughes supported the University's decision. Other notable items in the collection include: a "Report to the General Assembly on the State of New Jersey" on the Genovese matter; resolutions of various civic organizations both for and against Genovese; a statement by Douglas Dillon, a member of the Board of Governors, supporting academic freedom; and newspaper clippings written in reaction to Dillon's statement. Correspondents include New Jersey senators Harrison Williams and Clifford P. Case.
