    The second Vietnam War Moratorium took place November 14, 1969. People all over the nation, including many on college campuses, came out to protest American involvement in the Vietnam War. At the University of Washington, students and faculty decided to show their support for the Moratorium by having a candlelight vigil on campus. The vigil was supported by the Association for Faculty Action, the College of Education, and other campus organizations. The vigil started at 7:00 p.m. in front of the Husky Union Building (HUB) on a Friday that also happened to be the University of Washington Homecoming Night, during which Bob Hope was performing at Hec Edmundson Pavilion. While protesters later took up positions along access routes to Hec Edmundson Pavilion, they did not disturb the homecoming event. More than 2,000 people participated in the candlelight vigil to show their support for peace in Vietnam. (Source: The University of Washington Daily, 9/14/1969)See a prospectus for this... less
