This recording features Harry Kalven, Jr., of the University of Chicago Law School, and a panel of other speakers in the first of three discussions of Garner vs. Louisiana, in which the Supreme Court reversed the conviction of sit-in demonstrators for disturbing the peace. The program was recorded at a conference at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara in the summer of 1963. Panelists include Center president Robert M. Hutchins, Joseph Tussman, Richard Linkman, Harry Ashmore, Harvey Wheeler, Judge Edwin Dunaway, W. H. Ferry, John Wilkinson, William Gorman, and Hallock Hoffman.
This is second in a series of 13 programs produced by Florence Mischel from an extensive study conducted in the summer of 1963 at the Conference on law, jurisprudence, and the Bill of Rights, held at the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara.
Sound quality is poor and fluctuates wildly for the first five minutes of the recording.
