Low Library people congregating in the window of the President's office. That's me with the walkie-talkie (our link with strike headquarters in Ferris Booth Hall after the phones were disconnected). I got to do this because of my extensive battlefield communications training in the Army :-) This is probably day two or three, before the criss-crossed tape was added to the windows.
Here I am again (on the right) in the same Low Library window, taking in supplies from sympathisers. This is from the Spec article commemorating the 35th anniversary of the strike; the caption is totally wrong (rags and vaseline???). Sorry about the quality; that's how it was printed. Some day I'll see if I can find original photos at Spectator and Columbiana for this site.
|Here's another Low Library window shot. The middle two guys are Tony Papert (second from left, white shirt), the "shadowy figure" who "controlled" the Low Library occupiers (as the press would have it), and Gus Reichbach, an unruly law student [now, according to Columbia Magazine Spring 2008, a New York State Supreme Court Judge]. I remember the others, but not their names. Note the two styles of defiant raised-arm salute: the more mild and conciliatory flower-child V sign, and the more militant and radical clenched fist.
