The Campus Unrest records include photographs and documents from the Vietnam War protests at the University of Maryland between 1970 and 1972. The photographs capture demonstrations, police activity, arrests, and destruction, both on- and off-campus, caused by the protestors. Many images of damage in the Main Administration building from May 1970 are included. Documents include posters, news clippings, and recollections of the protests by students. There is also a detailed account of student dissent from the May 1970 demonstrations which contains copies of university correspondence, state of emergency updates, and student marshal guidelines.
