The Morningside Heights Committee on South Africa was apparently founded by students at Union Theological Seminary concerned about apartheid. The students campaigned to get Union Theological Seminary to end its ties to First National City Bank because of the bank made loans to the South African government. The co-chairmen were Dave Hornbeck and Chuck Powers in 1976 until they graduated. Carl D. Schneider was chairman in January 1967.
