Ayers on short list of canceled speakers

I had an idea for a package of three stories that would run the day before Professor William Ayers’ scheduled speech (Nov. 15 is a Saturday). Unfortunately, one of stories didn’t materialize, so I combined the other two stories. I am proud of this story because I was able to get a voice from UIC, even if it wasn’t Ayers’ and I also included comments from NU President J.B. Milliken. And I learned UNL had some awesome speakers in the 1970s.

This story also ran in conjunction with Professor Ayers’ guest editorial, which was cool.
