50th Reunion, class of 1972

The Brown University class of 1972 were among the first to experience coeducational housing as well as the open curriculum. Entering in 1968, they saw the Black Student Walkout and experienced the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy while on campus. They participated in protests against the Vietnam War and the shootings at Kent State University. This class also saw the last of Pembroke College traditions such as sherry hours and formal dinners as Pembroke merged with Brown in 1971. They graduated under Brown University President Donald Hornig.
