YEARBOOK of the NY STATE UNIVERSITY AT ALBANY - 1971
State University At NY, Albany Yearbook
edited by Martin E. Benjamin
The State University Yearbook is not only a school yearbook, it is first and foremost a manifesto for the rights longed for by the young generation of these troubled times, a distress call for the peace and justice which has been the object of collective aspiration through centuries, and becomes even more desired in the present. Through the beautiful, striking photographs and school records, becomes apparent the hope of a generation, who was born in conflict and still lives in conflict, yet strives for happiness in the ever improving condition of a society growing closer to its ideals. William Saroyan's deeply moving text gives life to the photographs and images, while captions and dates place the pictures in their context. 320 pages. 9.25 x 12.25 inches.
