Interview with Fred Nauman
QUESTION 19
LOUIS MASSIAH:

Can you describe the scene after you received the letter of transfer or, you know, end of employment, when you tried to reenter 271 and you're met by Mrs. Rooke and Walter had mentioned some other people?

FRED NAUMAN:

I'm not sure I can describe that scene adequately because there were a half dozen such scenes.

LOUIS MASSIAH:

Give me one, in May of '68.

FRED NAUMAN:

Ah, the, we were on some days physically blocked at the door by mobs, mostly of students, standing in the doorway. Among the students would be a number of members of the Governing Board. Mrs. Rooke was there on many occasions. Mrs. Marshall, a member of the Governing Board, was there. Ah, Walter Lynch who was the community liaison, ah, usually Sonny Carson was there, Father Powis was there, ah, and they would physically block us from entering. Ah, some days we were able to enter, ah, by going through a a phalanx of, of, ah, taunts. On other days, we just were physically unable to enter.
