Title

"Caldwell's Address to Thursday's Convocation"

Description

On page 8 of this episode of NC State's Technician is an account of university Chancellor John Caldwell's convocation speech on May 14, 1970. In the speech, Caldwell applauded the civic spirit running rampant across campus, as well as the cooperation between faculty and students in creating an environment that provides better education for its students. He reminded students, though, that the university was a place of learning and that transforming it into a strictly political institute would take it down a path towards kissing their freedom goodbye.
