BYU Students Petition for Vietnam War

L. Tom Perry Special Collections, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University.

On campuses throughout the United States in the late 1960s, the agony of the Vietnam War resulted in flag burnings, student strikes, destruction of campus property, protest riots, and other unrest. While protest demonstrations were absent on BYU campus, the issues, nevertheless, were keenly felt and were the subject of intensive discussion. These students set up a table asking for signatures on a petition in support of U.S. policies in Vietnam.
