Collections Number:

3/5/570m Abstract:

Announcements, correspondence and financial records for Support Your Campus Police, a grassroots fundraising campaign organized by professors Alan R. Andreasen and Newton Garver. They sought to recognize the UB campus police for their unarmed response to students protesting the December 18, 1967 recruitment visit of Dow Chemical Corporation, the makers of napalm. Andreasen and Garver believed the unarmed response of the campus police helped minimize violence at the demonstration. Receiving mostly small donations from UB faculty, staff and administrators, Support Your Campus Police raised over $500.00 in little over a month.
