Radicals in the Heartland

University of Illinois Press

In a private meeting with faculty, President Henry revealed his personal opposition to the Clabaugh Act, suggesting that today’s students did not need such protection, that the law was unenforceable anyway, and that it interfered with the spirit of academic freedom. His (leaked) opinions were printed in the Daily Illini; he did not deny them. Protesters were disconcerted by their Diskin success, arguing about the way forward as the DuBois Club met in student-government offices. As the semester came to a close, Henry and Millet spoke confidently to the board about the coming year, while Vic Berkey predicted big happenings.
