Glenn Frank the Man

During the days preceding the shootings on the Kent State campus, Glenn Frank, Professor of Geology, accepted responsibility as a Peace Marshall. Wearing his arm band he went down to the commons to take up his watch.
In the moments following the thirteen seconds of gun fire, it is Glenn Frank’s words that rises above the fray calling to the crowd in his emotionally charged voice to disperse.
It was a moment that would change a nation and a man.
For the next twenty years he would spend his life trying to understand what had brought his country and his campus to those fateful moments.
This website is dedicated to helping share his life, his research and his book, Anatomy of a Tragedy, to those who still search for answers.

All the information found on this site is from approximately 20 years of Glenn Frank's research into the May 4, 1970 shootings on the campus of Kent State University. Professor Frank did not draw any conclusions as to the guilt or innocence of any persons named in any of the documents. None should be assumed.
