Patrick M. Olmert collection

 Collection 0142-UA

Between 1970 and 1972, students at the University of Maryland initiated several protests on campus as a result of President Nixon's Vietnam War policies. This collection contains 17 photographs and approximately 70 negatives documenting the campus unrest, as captured by Patrick Olmert, a 1972 graduate of the university. The images include riots on U.S. Route 1 and on McKeldin Mall on campus, teargassing, and response from local and state police. A preliminary inventory is available.
