Title

Student Unrest Provisions Selected Sections of Federal Law, 1969

Description

National concern for student demonstrations in the 1960s and 1970s prompted Congress to pass laws that would penalize students who accepted federal scholarship or loan money and got arrested for civil disobedience. Selected sections of Public Law 90-557 that describe the circumstances of possible arrests and penalties were compiled and circulated across the country to college and university presidents by Robert H. Finch, Secretary of Health, Education, and Welfare during the Nixon administration. Dr. Kuhn received a copy of the document.
