This 1971 Collegian article describes President Modlin's response to alumni who were concerned and irate about on-campus speakers such as Dick Gregory, a black comedian, author, actor, activist, and civil rights leader, who came to speak on campus in 1970. On March 8, 1971 President Modlin had a meeting with the President's Advisory Council during which several letters from alumni were read that expressed their concerns about Dick Gregory speaking on campus. Some alumni even decided to withhold their financial donations, but President Modlin defended the principle of free speech as essential to the University. The author states that "the speaker selection committees this year chose an unbalanced slate of speakers" as Dick Gregory and the other speakers of the lecture series "are highly critical of current America." The author asserts that this monopolizes free speech as the speakers are all critics and are not representative of a variety of viewpoints.
