Former professor, anti-war activist to return for book talk after controversial firing

H. Bruce Franklin, who garnered attention for his anti-war activism and protest of Stanford’s role in the Vietnam War, was controversially fired in 1972 for allegedly interfering with a police order and inciting students to “disrupt University functions.” Franklin’s new memoir, which he will discuss today, describes the country’s historical war tactics and their implications today.
