Scope and Contents

Antiwar petitions; many signed in blood. The material is undated but likely from sometime during the 1967-68 academic year, as the addresses of two signers match that year's staff/student directory. Likely during fall 1967 when Dow Chemical was target of protest over manufacture of napalm used in the war in Vietnam.
