Faculty Urges Ending of ROTC on campus

Michael was president of the Washington University Faculty Senate for two years (1969-1971) during the contentious protests of the Vietnam War era.

In March 1970, it was the lead story page A1 in the Post-Dispatch that the Faculty Senate had voted to remove accreditation for Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) on campus.
