Most viewed - JUSTIN MORRILL COLLEGE (Michigan State U., 1965-1979)
Peoples Park - Michigan State University, May 19701380 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)

I took these pictures with an ancient Voltlander 35mm using a viewfinder and a flaky handheld lightmeter. These photos were all slides taken in 1971-72 and pretty much stayed in a slide cube all these years.
