Biographical Note

Emmet Larkin (1927-2012) was a professor in the Department of History at the University of Chicago from 1966 to 2006. Larkin was born in New York on May 19, 1927 to Emmet and Annabelle Larkin; his father’s family had emigrated from Ireland and his mother was Irish. He attended Seward Park High School and then, after serving in the United States army, he graduated with an undergraduate degree in 1950 from New York University and a Master of Arts degree in History in 1951 from Columbia University. After receiving his Ph.D. from Columbia in 1957, Larkin taught at Brooklyn College until 1960, when he became a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He joined the Department of History at the University of Chicago in 1966.

Larkin, whose dissertation was on the labor leader James Larkin (no relation), became one of the leading scholars in Irish history in the United States, studying the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland at the end of the nineteenth century. His contribution to the scholarship on Ireland was recognized with a Government of Ireland Cabinet Citation in 1981 and an honorary doctorate from the National University of Ireland in 1987.

Larkin’s professional papers and letters related to his research can be found at the John J. Burns Library at Boston College. By contrast, this collection of papers consists primarily of materials related to student activism during the late 1960s through the 1970s. During his time at the University of Chicago, Larkin chose to collect documents related to student activism on campus, especially during specific periods of protest. These documents are primarily from the extended sit-ins and hunger strike in 1969 after Professor Marlene Dixon was denied re-appointment in the Department of Sociology and from the student and faculty response to the extension of U.S. military action in Vietnam to Cambodia in 1970. They also include documents related to racial equality both on campus and in the larger community surrounding the University of Chicago. In addition, Larkin received newsletters and materials from international student activist organizations through the 1970s and into the 1980s; these he also collected and saved.

Scope Note

The collection is organized into three series:

I. University of Chicago

II. National and International Student Movements

III. Oversize

I. University of Chicago: This series consists of a variety of materials related to student activism and demonstrations at the University of Chicago from 1968 to 1981. Most of the documents are broadsheets, memos, public statements, meeting minutes, and reports relating to the controversy surrounding the non-reappointment of Professor Marlene Dixon in the Department of Sociology in December of 1968 and the demonstrations that then lasted from January until May of 1969. After the initial protests in January, the expulsions of involved students led to more demonstrations and controversy; many of the documents deal with the Disciplinary Committee of the University and whether or not students should be expelled for protest actions.

The material related to the Dixon protests is complemented by documentation from the response by faculty and students to the expansion of United States military campaigns in Vietnam to Cambodia in 1970. These materials often directly refer to the shooting of student protestors by the U.S. National Guard at Kent State that spring. Larkin’s collection of documents reflects the real debate about the proper role of the university in protest actions; other related topics of interest are racial inequality, both on campus and in the neighborhoods surrounding the University of Chicago, employee strikes, and controversy surrounding the University’s construction plans in the neighborhood.

The folders in this series are organized chronologically. In the Campus Protest folders, documents are listed in chronological order in the inventory below in order to represent the detailed timeline they create, although they may be bound together out of chronological order. While much of this material is from administrators or faculty, there are some documents from the students themselves. For example, Box 1, Folder 4 contains three documents of explanation from student protestors: “Strike: All Social Science Classes;” “Strike,” a statement from the Political Science Strike Committee; and a statement from the Ad Hoc Steering Committee of the protestors, “Today We are Sitting In…” Also of possible interest in Box 1, Folder 3 is “Status Quo History,” a critique of the teaching and writing of history at the University of Chicago by students from the department. This document was the result of a call for such critiques by student activists after Professor Marlene Dixon’s appointment was not renewed in the Department of Sociology. In Box 1, Folder 6 there are several more documents from student activists known as the Committee of 500 Against Disciplinary Procedures, as well as a statement from more moderate student activists known as the Independent Action Coalition. There is also a document from the protestors on April 23 explaining the end of their hunger strike. In addition, there are more statements from students, many undated, about socialism and worker organization, freeing political prisoners, and fighting racism in Box 1, Folder 1. Box 1, Folder 25 also contains memos about the Student Government’s Commission of Inquiry into the actions of University of Chicago faculty in relation to the government of Chile, and a letter of protest to this action by Professors Arnold C. Harberger and Milton Friedman.

Note that the following reports and minutes related to the Dixon protests in Box 1 are in their own folders. The “Report of the Faculty Committee to Review the Decision with Regard to the Reappointment of Assistant Professor Marlene Dixon” was made public on February 12, 1969. A copy of this report is found in Box 1, Folder 9. This committee was formed in 1969 in response to student protest when Professor Dixon was denied reappointment. The final report from the University Disciplinary Committee, dated March 21, 1969, can be found in Box 1, Folder 12. This committee was appointed by the Committee of the Council on January 30, 1969 in response to student actions after the denial of Professor Marlene Dixon’s reappointment. The meeting minutes of the University of Chicago Council of the University Senate from January until June of 1969 in Folder 8 deal directly with responses to student and faculty protest actions on campus.

II. National and International Student Movements: This series consists of magazines, newsletters, and correspondence from international and national student activist organizations from 1973 to 1984. Most of this material, as well as that in the Oversize series, is from the International Union of Students.

III. Oversize: Most of this series is composed of magazines, flyers, and posters issued by the International Union of Students about youth solidarity, student conditions around the world, and world youth festivals or conferences. Also of possible interest are materials sent to Larkin from the Coordinating Center for Democratic Opinion in February of 1969, an organization of professors seeking to counter campus extremists and defend academic freedom.

Larkin’s position as a scholar of Irish history also led the Consul General of Ireland in Chicago to gift him with two posters in honor of the James Joyce Centenary celebration in 1982. Information about the artists and the posters can be found in Box 6, along with one of the posters. The second poster is located in Oversize Folder 1.
