A tragic night in Badger sports … Madison mourns President Kennedy … and hopscotching the decade for headlines.
Muhammad Ali comes to town, and Bobby Knight turns us down .. two dancing nudes are bad news for the UW … and a block party becomes a three-night riot.
A new threat to Monona Terrace … Lakeside towers for the elderly … A self-inflicted traffic jam … A vicious murder.
Madison, second week of December, 1967 … A political piper of peace makes his first appearance … A Badger becomes a presidential son-in-law … Savings to come at a new coop, but no more hot fun in the summertime … And a global musical tragedy in a Madison lake
On campus, the last month of the decade begins with a major step for black studies, while Crazylegs cans Coatta. One great professor is honored, another is mourned. And there’s open warfare between the city and its schools
Madison, before and after the assassination of President Kennedy.
