Title:Free Speech and Kent State [page 2 of 2]

Alternative title: Eye Witness Report from Kent State Announces: Speech by Harry Vincent, "a Kent State student who witnessed the opening of fire by the Ohio National Guard," at the HUB, 7:30 P.M. Background information: "Kent State University was placed in an international spotlight after a tragic end to a student demonstration against the Vietnam War and the National Guard on May 4, 1970. Shortly after noon on that Monday, 13 seconds of rifle fire by a contingent of 28 Ohio National Guardsmen left four students dead, one permanently paralyzed, and eight others wounded. Not every student was a demonstration participant or an observer. Some students were walking to and from class. The closest student wounded was 30 yards away from the Guard, while the farthest was nearly 250 yards." (From Kent State University May 4 Collection website (http://speccoll.library.kent.edu/4may70))
