Bascom Hill Cemetery

[In regard to the Spring 2015 Traditions, “Displays on Bascom Hill”]: In 1968, at the height of the war in Vietnam, students awoke one morning to find Bascom Hill covered with crosses painted white (just like the crosses in the cemetery at Omaha Beach in France) and a sign that said only, “Class of 1968.” This image and memory have stayed with me all these years.
