Justin Isherwood

The Eve of Revolution: an antiwar memoir
by
Prof. Jim Missey

"Hardly a day goes by that I do not think of some aspect of the academic year that began in the fall of 1969 and ended in the spring of 1970, during which year I was an associate Professor in the English Department at what was then called Wisconsin State University, Steven Point. I feel even now in some measure stunned by the experiences of that year and still have not fully settled them..." Thus writes Jim Missey in 1985 of his experiences with the anti-Vietnam War protests in Stevens Point. Anyone involved with any aspect of the events of those years, be it as a veteran, protester, or onlooker, will enjoy Jim's recounting of that year.
