Stanford in Turmoil
Stanford University Press

The Advisory Board of Stanford University's Academic Council scheduled hearings to determine whether English professor H. Bruce Franklin was guilty of the charges hurled against him. The university brought four charges against Franklin, including his role in the disruption of Henry Cabot Lodge's visit in January 1971 and his involvement in the White Plaza rally held the following year. The board of trustees voted 20–2 to dismiss Franklin, with Denis Hayes, the former president of the Associated Students of Stanford University, and Ira Hall, the only black trustee at the time, providing the dissenting opinions. The American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California filed an appeal to the civil courts on Franklin's behalf. On June 19, 1972, radicals burned one wing of Encina Hall, the biggest administration building in Stanford.
