Coalition Against Racism and Apartheid on Campus
The memorandum says Brian Ivory reported on his in-depth discussion with Mr. Angott, Chair of the Michigan State University (MSU) Foundation; Brian perceived a positive response to his points and to our proposal for the Foundation to divest immediately from non-Michigan corporations and to commit the Foundation to complete divestiture in 1987. Frank Beeman reported that Ron Laughter, Executive Director of the Foundation, stated the Foundation Finance Committee would discuss the proposal on April 8. After much discussion, it was decided, after much discussion, to leaflet and circle the Administration building during the April 4 Trustees' meeting; people are to be notified to carry posters urging the MSU Foundation to follow MSU's lead in divestment. The memorandum discusses National Divestment Protest Day, Martin Luther King Commemoration Day, David Dwyer, Marylee Crofts, Sam Carter, Bill Derman, Ivy Goduka, Student Affairs, posters, and flyers.
