One of my profs had been booted out of Iran in 1964 I believe, for protesting against the government (his family was influential so he was allowed to leave instead of being tortured and/or killed). Anyway he came to the US and got his undergraduate degree somewhere on the west coast. He then went to Kent State to work on his Master's.... right in time for the shootings. He said he was completely horrified. Brought back bad memories for him and he dropped out for a while. Did eventually finish up and was my favorite prof ever.

My dad witnessed some of the protesting, but thankfully, he left before the incident took place.

It really was a day of infamy, the demonstrators were shot in cold blood.
