More than 1,000 people demonstrated outside of Nassau Hall to end the University’s relationship with the Institute for Defense Analyses in an anti-Vietnam War protest May 2, 1968. The photo is part of a new exhibition at Mudd Library titled “Suits, Soldiers, and Hippies: The Vietnam War Abroad and at Princeton.” The exhibit, which runs through June 5, includes transcripts of private conversations of presidents and policymakers, magazine articles and pamphlets, and photos of student rallies and protests. Included are shots of Commencement in 1970, when many students chose to forgo caps and gowns while carrying anti-war signs; and a photo of the Triangle Club’s controversial performance of Call a Spade a Shovel in 1969.
