Throwback Thursday: the campus awakes

Fifty years ago, in our April 1965 issue, we reported for the first time on student activism at Yale—a two-week-long protest over the university’s tenure policies, sparked by the denial of tenure to popular philosophy professor Richard Bernstein ’58PhD. There was much more to come of what President Kingman Brewster Jr. ’41 described to alumni as “constructive restlessness” among students.
