Abstract: David Hopcraft was an Ohio State graduate working for The Cleveland Plain Dealer when he was sent to campus to cover the 1970 student riots. As a reporter, he witnessed key moments in the riots, as well as the Governor’s and administration’s reactions, and thus has a unique perspective of the events of May 1970. As a student Hopcraft worked on The Lantern and later, as an alumnus, served on the Alumni Advisory Board.
