Chase List of Student Forum, 1935

The Student Forum was a student organization that selected speakers involved with political issues to be invited to campus. Dean of Students Edward Nicholson, who advised the group, most likely provided Chase with the names of those speakers throughout the 1930s. Chase monitored who was invited. He annotated the 1935 list in red for those speakers he disapproved of as “Reds,” and used blue for those to whom he had no objection. He also suggested names he wanted brought to campus.
