Walker, J. C. (John Charles), 1893-1994Alternative names
Professor J. Charles Walker was an instructor in the Kent State University School of Art at the time of the May 4, 1970, shootings on the campus. Following the shootings, the University was closed by court injunction, and it remained closed for the duration of the spring quarter. Special arrangements were subsequently made in each academic department for students to complete their coursework. In the case of the Art Department, mimeographed letters were sent to students' home addresses offering them alternate ways either to receive partial credit or withdraw from the course. In large part, this collection consists of the student responses to the forms sent out by J. Charles Walker in the weeks following the shootings. Students returning the forms often wrote notes concerning the shootings and their feelings about the closing of the University.
