May 4 Resource Room

The May 4 Resource Room, which contains materials about May 4, 1970, campus unrest during the Vietnam era and the U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, was established in the University's Library, and is located on the first floor. Kent alumnus Victor Buehrle Jr. provided funding for the resource room, which is open to the public and serves as a reading room. Portraits of the four slain students and selected art work are displayed in the room.
