Ask me anything... within reason

My notes from George McGovern’s Mar. 28, 1977 lecture on Vietnam for his graduate course “American Foreign Policy: 1945-1975” at Columbia, which I was somehow allowed to take as a second-semester freshman. McGovern flew up from DC to New York every Monday night for the big lecture class, 6 to 8pm at the School of International Affairs (now SIPA). His lectures became a “happening”: one night, Jackie Kennedy was sitting a few rows ahead of me.

If nothing else, my reverence for the professor and my determination to get a good grade (it was my only A that wasted spring) trained me to maintain diligent note-taking for a full semester.
