Funeral of Concordia Ordinum

Wednesday, March 5, 1969

The so-called funeral of Concordia Ordinum took place on this day, in protest of the “death” of the agreement between the Board of Trustees and the Student Association to have more cooperation and communication between the groups. Concordia Ordinum is the name, created by Cicero, of a utopian society in which all classes are created equal. The Student Association was feeling snubbed by the Board because of a missed meeting, tuition raises, and other communication issues. A casket was carried from the Carriage House across Campus to the Mansion. Upon seeing the coffin in front of his office, as quoted by the next day’s Newsday, Allyn Robinson proclaimed “I am looking forward to a resurrection.”
