This Week in Ithaca College History

What was The Ithacan reporting 40 years ago?

During the week of Oct. 11, 1973, The Ithacan reported that Chief Minority Counsel Fred D. Thompson of the Senate Watergate Committee spoke at Ford Hall and defended the committee’s actions during Watergate. Watergate was a political scandal that occurred during the Nixon administration in 1972 and ultimately led to President Nixon’s resignation from office.
