Please let us know if you are planning to attend this Reunion by completing the brief A3M 50th Reunion Planning Survey form below.
This spring marks the 50th Anniversary of the April Third Movement (A3M), one of the two largest outbursts of progressive activism in the history of Stanford University. We are planning a 50-Year Reunion to be held at Stanford on May 3, 4, and 5.
As with previous gatherings, the Reunion commemorates more than A3M. We hope to bring together people who were active at Stanford and adjacent communities any time during the 1960s and 1970s. We also invite current students, faculty, and staff, as well as family members of our original cohort.
Over 100 people attended our 2014 Reunion, and though we have lost some beloved comrades over the last 5 years, we’re hoping that the 50-year milestone will bring out even more participants. We have over 200 people on our e-mail list, but we know that many old friends are not on this list. So, we are writing to ask you to circulate this message to people with whom you are still in touch. For your convenience, a PDF version that you can download is avaiable below.
We are still working on the program, but the tentative plan includes the following:
Friday evening, May 3: Reception at the Herzenberg home on the Stanford campus
Saturday, May 4: Programs at Tresidder Union all day and evening
Sunday, May 5: Programs at Tresidder Union in the morning and early afternoon, and a walking tour of the campus
Arrangements are being made for participants to record oral histories throughout the week-end.
We’re hoping to structure sessions that maximize dialogue among attendees, as well as time to share informally reminiscences and perspectives—that is, to schmooze. We will provide food at cost, and we’ve raised enough money so those who cannot afford the fee can receive “scholarships.” We’ll send out a registration form once we’ve finalized the details.
Our policy is not to share the names of people on our mailing list, and we do not share the names of people planning to attend reunions unless we receive their permission. So, if you are planning to attend the Reunion, please let us know if we can include your name in a listing of prospective attendees when we send people announcements concerning the 2019 Reunion. Including a semi-public listing of people planning to attend the Reunion may be the best way to build interest and identify other people to invite.
At this stage in the reunion planning, it will be helpful if you complete and send us the brief form below. Thank you.
See you in May!
