Faculty fired
,during Red
scare may be
The University chapter of the
American Association of University
Professors is currently working to-
ward honorary reinstatements of
*Mark Nickerson and Chandler Davis
- former faculty members fired for
refusing to testify before a subcom-
mittee of the House Un-American
Activities Committee in 1954.
"Reinstater.ent is a new issue
that is just emerging," said Prof.
James Miller, President of the Uni-
versity's AAUP. "We are now gath-
ering information about what was
done at other Universities that went
through similar experiences."
Temple University, Reed Col-
lege; and the University of Vermont
are among the colleges which have
given honorary degrees to professors-
who were purged during the Mc-
Carthy era.
Prof. Mark Nickerson, who is
professor emeritus of pharmacology
at McGill University, said an hen-
orary reinstatement "would be as
good a recognition as could happen,"
but "the decision to remove
Hatcher's name from the graduate li
brary, to me, wquld mean more than
being reinstted."
Rackham Student Government
proposed a resolution last fall to re-
name the Harlan Hatcher Graduate
Library because of the former Uni-
versity president's role in the faculty
Weprimands. In 1954, Hatcher rec-
ommended to the University's Board
of Regents that Davis and Nickerson
be fired.

"Decisions are made with personal and emotional involvement for the
enLLwooOiDa y best of the city," said Colleen McGee, a member of the.Ann Arbor commu-
hool graduation on nity.
Those who opposed accreditation of the AAPD cited incidences of police
harassment, brutality, and discrimination against people of color, gay men
rotest and lesbians, women, and youth.
"The Ann Arbor police have consistently acted in the interest of people
-aduation who hold economic and political power," said Dean Baker, adjunct lecturer
nmittee also held a of Economics at the University.
mte gradaon td Council member Larry Hunter (D- First Ward) said the AAPD shows
the graduationty ,no sense of impartiality."
