Washington and Lee in the 1960s

The 1960s were a time of great cultural, social and political unrest.  Despite its conservative reputation, Washington and Lee University, a small, all-male liberal arts college in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, did not escape the decade's upheavals. From debates over desegregation and black power, to curricular changes, to coeducation, the sexual revolution, and the student movement to stop the War in Vietnam, W&L's faculty, staff and student body participated in and contributed to the 1960s.
