“How Many More?” American University Students Reaction to the violence at Kent State (Film Viewing)

In May of 1970 in the heat of the campus protests over the events at Kent State, Professor Glenn Harnden, from AU’s Department of Communications, pulled all the old film on hand and sent several students off with cameras to shoot activities both on and off campus. Professor John Douglass re-discovered this film as he was preparing for the move into the School of Communication’s new building. He transferred the film to the Archives and we used the Library’s Roger Brown Preservation Fund to conserve and digitize the most significant rolls from the set. To celebrate the completion of this project, we will be holding a viewing of clips from the film on Wednesday November 12 in the Library’s Training and Events Room. The event will run from 5 to 6pm with the viewing starting at 5:15pm. All are welcome.
