Found in 8 Collections and/or Records:
Papers of John R. Watanen, an English professor at Northern Michigan University, relating to his involvement with the university's Academic Senate and various senate committees.
This collection contains one issue of the Peace newspaper published in 1969. This particular issue deals almost entirely with subjects of racism and African American students on campus. A major topic is the elimination of the Job Corps program on Northern Michigan University's campus.
This collection contains copies of various independent student newspapers. The collection does not represent a complete set of each paper. The Director of Student Activities, Carol Huntoon, appears to have collected the papers. The file containing copies of "Peace" and the controversy surrounding the NMU Adinistration's attempt to censor the paper is of particular interest.
