?The Chalmers Years?

This was a time of demonstrations and dissent, the Vietnam war, controversy over the ROTC, curfews, burning of the Student Union, hippies and hangers on, and the birth of the women?s movement known as ?Feminism? at KU. We will see this era through the eyes of one of the main players in this dramatic time. Emily Taylor was Dean of Women and deeply involved with the Chancellor on many issues of that time. She?s not one to mince words. She will try to have other important players with her: Captain Joe Marzlaff (member of the ROTC), Max Lucas (president of the faculty Senate), Grant Goodman (whose office building was invaded and occupied by protesting women students) and Marilyn Stokstad (faculty activist). This should be a good one!
