Join us to celebrate the life and legacy of anti-​war activist, politician, and U-M alumnus Tom Hayden (1939-2016) through the research of current U-M students and recent U-M graduates who have focused on topics related to Hayden's work. Talks will be followed by a reception.

  • Austin McCoy, Mellon Humanities Postdoctoral Fellow in Egalitarianism and the Metropolis, U-M, speaks about "Tom Hayden and the Final Campaign to End the War."
  • Leah Schneck, senior in the Residential College studying Social Theory and Practice, talks to "Participatory Democracy: Arnold Kaufman and the Rise of the New Left (1960-67)."
  • Sian Olson Dowis, doctoral candidate in U.S. History at Northwestern University, covers "Out of Isolation: The New Left in Urban America."

In 2014 U-M Library acquired Hayden's papers to add to the Joseph A. Labadie Collection, an archive in the Special Collections Library documenting the history of social protest movements and marginalized political communities from the 19th century to the present. The Tom Hayden Papers are used frequently by students, scholars and researchers.
