Description:
Peter Bohmer was an assistant economics professor at San Diego State University during the 1960s. During his time at SDSU, he was known for his activism, participating in many campus demonstrations. In 1971, Bohmer was charged with unprofessional conduct and eventually fired by Chancellor Glenn S. Dumke. Following several hearings, Bohmer was eventually recommended for rehire by Chancellor Dumke, but had already decided he would not return to SDSU. The collection documents Bohmer's personal and professional life, including legal issues during his time as an assistant economics professor at San Diego State University as well as his arrest and conviction for staging a protest against the Santa Fe Railroad Company in 1972.
