Interview with Kenneth Clark
QUESTION 17
SAM POLLARD:

Dr. Clark I'm going to ask you again, what did you think would happen if the police came on campus? If you could be explicit about what you thought would happen to the students if police walked in the administration building and tried to take them out of it?

KENNETH CLARK:

I think there would be--

SAM POLLARD:

I just need you to say--

KENNETH CLARK:

I think that if the police had come on the campus during that period of controversy and confrontation, and with the students in control of the administration building, that it would be physical violence. It would be arrest, obviously. The student leaders would be taken off to jail. Maybe we would have to start all over again getting them out. You know. It was clear that this was not the thing to happen. and that the students had to understand that. Although some of them might have considered it more exciting if that happened. But for some of us on the board this would have been increasing the turbulence.
