IU Teacher Who Led Moratorium Protests is Suspended

Title

IU Teacher Who Led Moratorium Protests is Suspended

Description

Newspaper article relating how leftist student leader and teaching assistant Joel Allen was suspended from the position for "professional misconduct." Allen had been active in Moratorium Day protests and led students in bailing out Jim Retherford from jail a week earlier. The article misidentifies Allen as a teacher, rather than a teaching assistant.

Taken from the IU Archives' reference file "Student Demonstrations July/Dec 69."
