As for the leadership, there was an overlap with the civil rights groups. Civil rights advocates, myself included, tended to be anti-war activists at one point or another.
B: Well, you can call it leadership if you like, but it was in questionable directions. The present leaders are really better leaders because they are seeking to do things that are constructive for the students and things they thing that students will support. I think the student government situation is just wonderful because the courts are making it very difficult but our students go ahead and do it anyway. In the end, usually when it goes to court, the students gets supported. But it is much more difficult than it used to be. And of course the students debate these things. The Jefferson Society has a long history of doing these things. The Honor Committees have kept this sort of thing alive. If it hadn't been for all this discussion, I'm sure it would have fallen under. They would have assumed that they somehow didn't comply with laws. The students wouldn't buy that. It was really remarkable.
I guess we were more comfortable at the "Old U." and now are nostalgic about it. But we know that this place has a long way to go with more changes, to reach its full potential. Perhaps, it's attitudes of those like myself that are holding the University back.
