Peoples Park - Michigan State University, May 1970865 viewsDuring the spring of 1970, a "People's Park" sprang up in the quad area south of the Red Cedar River bounded by Erickson Hall on the east, the International Center (bookstore building) on the south, and Wells Hall (math / languages) on the west. Residents pitched tents (and at least one tipi) or set up improvised lean-to's. The area (also dubbed "Free") remained the scene of a persistent resident population, daily passers-through, and regular gatherings through the remainder of that turbulent spring term.

Kevin Fulton has kindly sent in scanned copies of some photos he took back in May 1970 of the People's Park area.

My best guess is that this photo was taken from the south shore of the Red Cedar, between Erickson and Wells, facing south toward the International Center. (- Editor)

'Hash Avenue' (and similarly provocative titles) were the unofficial names given to the primary sidewalks in the area where the People's Park tents and other structures were erected.
