About This Site

Thanks to the hundreds of UW–Madison alumni who responded to an open call for memories about the protest climate on the UW–Madison campus in the 1960s. All of the submissions helped inform our work and led to a richer project. A special thank you to the alumni featured prominently on these pages. We greatly appreciate your willingness to share your stories and the time it took to do so.

“A Turning Point: Protesting Dow Chemical on Campus” was produced by University Communications and University Marketing at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
