Title: HARMLESS OR HOSTILE? :THE SDS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON IN THE SPRING OF 1970
Author: Dicharry, Kristen Marie
Abstract: The rather loosely organized (and increasingly weakening) Oregon chapter of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) reportedly influenced a number of student protest situations leading up to these events, but were the ROTC bombing on April 15th, or the riots following the Johnson Hall sit-in on April 23rd, 1970, inevitable occurrences independent of the SDS’ contributions? The true identity and campus role of the University of Oregon chapter of the SDS in 1969-1970 is difficult to define; reports of who the SDS was at that time varies within the individual accounts by the administration, The Oregon Daily Emerald, The Augur (a Eugene underground newspaper), the general student population, and the SDS members themselves. It is clear to a certain extent, that the local SDS mirrored the national chapter, but it also mirrored the general sentiment of the national youth movement at large. The SDS undoubtedly had some impact on the events in the spring of 1970 at the University of Oregon . . . but how, and to what extent?
