Faculty members ,rather than the media, interpreted events for students during the Cuban missile crisis, recalled Bill Aossey ’63, president of Midamar Corp. and a member of the Cornell Board of Trustees.

“Media presence wasn’t as prominent then and TVs were not prevalent. Each professor related it to his class differently. I remember going to sociology professor Ennis’ class, where he said, ‘Students, I think we are probably as close to war as we have ever been since the end of World War II.’ Professor Heywood told us we were under a very tense and critical period in history,” Aossey said. “The atmosphere on campus was concern.”
