Join a tour of the 'LSE 1969' Exhibiton led by LSE Archivist Sue Donelly. The late 1960s saw sit-ins and demonstrations in universities across the USA and Europe and in London the unrest spread to LSE. LSE 1969 will trace the impact of student activism from 1967-1969.
The exhibit aims to explain and clarify some myths surrounding this complex period of LSE’s history through a display of archival documents, photographs and film and audio interviews.
Sue Donnelly joined LSE in 1989 and as LSE Archivist is responsible for the development of LSE’s institutional archive and raising awareness of the School’s unique and fascinating history. Her work has included creating content for the LSE History blog and developing a campus history tour to introduce staff and students to the history of LSE.
