What Followed from the FSM on the Berkeley Campus

Editorial note: This outline of post-FSM developments will be expanded, particularly in its Faculty and Administrative sections. We expect that our cooperation with the Bancroft Library will enable us to make the texts of many documents from 1965 available here by late 2000. We invite others who care, to help us make the documents from later years available online. Meanwhile, we intend to elaborate this outline with useful references to published accounts and interpretations. We hope that other veterans and scholars familiar with aspects of this local history will help us gather references, source documents, and unpublished materials -- particularly their own, and of personal character -- that may be put on line, to illuminate the complex era of developments that followed the FSM.
