Changing values, ideals and culture are chronicled in this 1970 hardbound volume of The Diamondback. Published and issued on the University of Maryland campus, the daily publication (Monday through Friday) kept students abreast of Terrapin sports, as well as political issues, the Viet Nam skirmish, protests and entertainment including a biting review of a Doors concert at the Baltimore Civic Center. In terms of memories and thoughts of those oft-turbulent times, this keepsake is certain to keep your attention for one page after another. Including an uninterrupted run of editions from March 9 to May 22, 1970, the pages remain crisp (though have expected age-induced browning near the edges) and the leather-bound cover remains sturdy, as well.
