In Memoriam [George Winne]

[San Diego: 1970]. Announces establishment, by the UCSD Art Department in conjunction with chancellor William McGill, of the "George Winne Memorial Shrine...taking George's charred remains as its core, the Shrine will seek to involve and encompass the entire campus....Passive Resistance can only have effect under conditions of complete self-sacrifice. In completing his life, George followed the dictates of law and order: his refusal to disobey the rule of Chancellor McGill and Governor Reagan allowed George to take full responsibility for his actions by turning himself in, in the name of God..." Winne (1947-1970) was a UCSD undergraduate who famously committed suicide by self-immolation on a public plaza at the University of California, San Diego, to protest U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War.
