To officially note League of Women Voters Week which will begin Monday, Mayor Robert J. Harris reads the proclamation of the event to Mrs. Charles W. Joiner, president of the League. The national organization is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Ann Arbor's chapter, founded in 1920, is on the brink of observing its golden anniversary.
The 1969 South University Riot was a series of confrontations between local law enforcement and factions of Ann Arbor’s counterculture population that extended over three nights, from June 16-18, on or near the four-block South University Avenue shopping district in Ann Arbor.
