Presentation will include police surveillance photos, cartoons and graphics documenting the student and faculty activism at the City College of NY spawned by the Depression and the rise of fascism in Europe. This activism brought repeated crackdowns by the administration and culminated in the dismissal of 50 CCNY faculty & staff -- the largest academic purge in US history.
