Big Students' Indignation Meeting Will Be Held in Caruthers Hall Monday Afternoon November 9, 1914 at 2 O'Clock

[Lebanon, TN: 1914]. Cumberland University, established in 1842 about 40 miles west of Nashiville, is one of the South's oldest liberal arts universities. Its law school, established 10 years later, was the first in Tennessee and the first law school west of the Appalachians. This broadside announces a student rally at Caruthers Hall, seat of the Law School, "...to protest against the treatment accorded the student body by the Lebanon police and justice court system and petty officials connected therewith." The events precipitating this mass display of "indignation" are not specified, and we can find no contemporary account of the rally, which may have never actually occurred. Broadside, 11-3/4" x 9". Printed in black ink on thin, tan paperstock, recto-only. Text in single column beneath bold headline. Minor wear to edges; Very Good or better.
