Abstract

This paper examines antiwar protests at SUNY Plattsburgh during the Vietnam War era. He draws on primary sources from the Feinberg Library Special Collections such as student newspapers, a recording of a teach-in, speeches, and letters to the college president Georg W. Angell to argue that it the non-repressive response of the college administration to the protestors that allowed antiwar protests at Plattsburgh to remain peaceful. He situates his argument in the most recent scholarship on antiwar college protests, which looks more closely at the role protests at lesser-known and state university campuses played in the antiwar movement.
