    on the fight over construction of the gym on the site?  

    I'll give it a try sometime if it isn't done first.

      Well, yeah, I guess there might be that additional diary in all of this. I walked off the campus for the last time right before they brought in those bulldozers and haven't been back since. So I've not seen the site with the gym there. That'll change towards the end of July....

      Hmmmm...... I may have to consider that. Let's see what kicks up from my visit. But I will certainly keep your request in mind because that was a very good fight, even if we did lose it. Thanks for the suggestion.

        Pulled the hinges from the door behind which the Regents were meeting when they officially approved the gym plan in 1977.

          Went to the meeting -- was it the Regents? -- who listened politely to the appeal of the parents and then said they thought it should be built anyway. Can't remember all the details of the meetings but, that last day, I walked from that meeting over to the Hill with Arthur Krause. Then we walked over the hill and down to Allison's spot before walking off campus for the last time. I was headed for law school that fall and, although I had planned to get arrested, Arthur Krause and Rev. John Adams convinced me not to do it, saying that I really didn't know how it might affect my future. So, instead, I walked off campus with the two of them and Arthur vowed that day never to return ... and I don't think he ever did. All the parents wanted was to preserve the site and the university couldn't even do that for them.
