Additional Information: Silkscreen, References: Yankers 652, "During April 1969, student unrest at Harvard University was mounting. Students took over University Hall in Harvard Yard, Cambridge, Massachusetts, evicted the administrators whose offices were in the building, and eventually were expelled themselves by Massachusetts State Police. During the protests, posters were used in many ways: to express dissent, as notices of meeting places, and as announcements of events. The most prolific group of poster creators was a print workshop set up in the basement of Harvard's Memorial Hall and calling itself 'Designers for Peace,' which had a sibling group at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology."

"Protesters were against the University's expansion into Boston and Cambridge, against involvement in the Vietnam War, and in particular the University's inclusion of a Reserve Officers Training Corps on campus. "
