The Gadfly, May 1967

This copy of The Gadfly opens with news of chapter elections and bylaws, and contains a lengthy opinion piece entitled "A Revolutionary Purpose For the Union." Also to be found are editorials, a review of the film Blow-up, and short fiction submitted by faculty.

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).
