Rice University students and faculty protesting during Masterson presidency controversy, viewed from the right
A large crowd of Rice University students and faculty protesting during the controversy over Dr. William Masterson’s presidency. The protestors in the front are holding a banner (partially obscured) which reads “Faculty & Students United.” The crowd is assembled on a grassy area, with trees visible behind them, and are standing at the edge of a two-lane street. A few people are standing in the street itself, including a man addressing the crowd through a bullhorn. Original resource is a black and white photograph.
A five-day controversy rose on the campus of Rice University in February 1969 following the appointment of Dr. William H. Masterson by the Board of Trustees as the university's new President to succeed Kenneth Pitzer, who had resigned in August 1968.
