from Monmouth University's student newspaper, The Outlook, 1965 - 1975.
The Vietnam Era is a cautionary tale in American
Society today. One of the unexamined
primary sources of information on this turbulent era is the university press. This resource
can be a catalyst for research on an interdisciplinary level on any campus today. A cursory
examination of the Monmouth University Newspaper, The Outlook, illustrated a compelling
selection of articles surveying how students and faculty were affected by a conflict which
historian George Herring describes as the "longest and most devisive war in American History."
In the spring of 2001, Professors Susan Douglass,
History and Anthropology Deparment and
Mike Banick, Special Collections & Reference Librarian, decided to mine this buried treasure
utilizing the research and cataloguing skills of Linda Silverstein and Bryan Kreher, students in
Professor Douglass' elective, The Vietnam War. Via a program entitled "Archivist-In-Training,"
these students surveyed issues of The Outlook during the Vietnam Era to prepare an annotated
record of campus events and views through the eyes of their peers for this tumultuous time.
Their work created an indispensable research tool for anyone interested in studying sutdent
activism on a relatively small campus in New Jersey.
The articles illustrate opposing points of
view on the Vietnam War. One of the most interesting
was an ongoing column entitled "Politically Speaking -- A Page of Political Comments and
Opinions." Headlines for articles in this column were either "What's Left?" or "Right On." Cartoons
ranged from works by student cartoonists to professionals like Jules Feiffer.
Researching this material is embarking on a
time machine experience to rival H.G. Wells and Edward
Bellamy. The beauty of this voyage for the university community is that it provides a mirror of
the past that students and faculty can identify with. Many disciplines, not just History and Political
Science, but English, Communication, Art and others, will find food for thought in this collection.
Faculty will find provocative material for class discussion on this period.
The Outlook articles are linked to the website
of the Vietnam Era Educational Center (VEEC)
located in Holmdel, New Jersey. The informational brochure of the VEEC describes this center as
"a place dedicated to telling thef ull story of the Vietnma War, as seen from the front lines as well
as from the home front." What better way to survey the university home front then by viewing it
through the eyes of university students whose lives were dramatically changed by this event.
University libraries have always been "learning
laboratories" pioneering new approaches to making
thier collections more accessible for research. Cybertechnology allows this collection to be available
24/7/356. H.G. Wells would be proud.
