Throwback Thursday ~ May 4, 1970 ~ KSU
The scene minutes before the shooting. This photo is from James Michener's book, "KENT STATE What Happened and Why".
I am standing (bottom of photo) directly next to the door of the car looking in opposite direction of the crowd. I had just returned from lunch and was headed to the Alumni Relations office where I worked. The shooting occurred as soon as I got to the office and we were then locked in for several hours. Once they allowed us to leave, I RAN all the way to the off campus house I was living in. I was terrified.
The burned down ROTC building in the photo is where several of my art classes had been held.
