.25 linear feet

Professor Lynn H. Parsons taught American history at Wayne State University from 1965 until 1971. This collection consists of correspondence, reports, meeting minutes, a legal brief and newspaper clippings related to his grievance with the Wayne State History Department over its refusal to recommend him for tenure. His case, along with faculty layoffs in 1972, helped to build support for collective bargaining at the University. The files are arranged chronologically.
