Mary N. Gonzales

  • A Vote for Student Protest

    In preparing this supplement, the ATLANTIC invited student activists on several campuses to comment on the issues and temperament of student radicalism as they knew it. Some refused the invitation; many tried to express their feelings. The most compelling reply came from Mary Nichols Gonzales, a senior and a moving force in campus politics at Cornell University. Mrs. Gonzales is an honors student, a former editor of the TROJAN HORSE, Cornell's literary magazine, and co-author of STEP BY STEP, a book about civil rights work in Fayette County, Tennessee, where she spent the summer of 1964 helping to register Negro voters.
