Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Contains a scrapbook of newsclippings and other items about the "Reese Affair" as well as items relating to Ludwig's career as a history and sociology professor at Eastern Washington College of Education (EWCE). Also includes a copy of Ludwig's thesis entitled, "Historical foundations of Chinese foreign policy ... " The "Reese Affair" led to the resignation of President Freeman and some faculty members. Reese entered the Master's program at EWCE, and was listed in the Faculty listing in the catalog as possessing an MA which had not yet been granted when the 1953/54 catalog came out, causing a controversy among the faculty, and eventually a vote of "no confidence" in the administration by the students. The controversy resulted in the dismissal of some of the faculty members who had been particularly vocal in the matter, eventually most were rehired.--Contains text from EWU website.
