Article "Recent student activism cools as puzzling quiet takes hold"

Description

In early 1971, student activism against the Vietnam War was beginning to slow down not only at Richmond, but at many universities around the country as well. Richmond College senior and student activist Jim Winders claimed this was because the Vietnam War “ceased to be a powerful issue,” as well as because the student activists realized after the Kent State Shootings that change would be slow. Richmond College senior Marshall Cook also claimed students were “waiting for the new President.” Another Richmond College student, sophomore Elwood Elliot, argued that students were apathetic that year, but demonstrations in Richmond could occur “if something would happen such as Cambodia last year.”
