IN 1898

March 18, 1998


On March 18, 1898, a mass meeting of the students of the university was held in Fraser Hall at noon for the purpose of securing aid for the starving Cubans at Mantanzas. The Lawrence World noted "Chancellor Snow ... wished that the students would contribute liberally to relieve the suffering recontradoes, who are held almost as prisoners in the fortified towns of Cuba by the cruel and oppressing Spaniards."
