The Gadfly, March 1966

This issue of The Gadfly opens with the announcement of an emergency meeting to discuss the dismissal of a speech instructor. The rest of the paper outlines a defense of the instructor as well as an indictment of the procedures leading to his termination. 

The Gadfly
 was the newsletter of the BMCC chapter of the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT). The UFCT and the Legislative Conference were the two main organizations that advocated for the concerns of CUNY faculty prior to their merging in 1972 to form the Professional Staff Congress (PSC).
