While the late 1960s was a tumultous time at universities and colleges across the United States with Vietnam protests in full swing, the students and sometimes the faculty at Rice University took a different approach to protest.

Their demonstrations focused on two major events: one being the Masterson Crisis in April 1969 and the other being the Abbie Hoffman incident in April 1970.
