Tiger Paper, April 1972

This edition of the Tiger Paper includes: interviews with BMCC students who were veterans of the Vietnam War, criticism of the college's registration process, a front page article detailing the firing of a professor, and an interview regarding recent developments in China.

The Tiger Paper, which billed itself as "Manhattan Community College's only underground newspaper," was published between 1971 and 1974 by a group of radical faculty members at BMCC. The paper, whose name was a play on the quip of Mao Tse-tung that "U.S. imperialism is a paper tiger," addressed struggles both internal and external to the college while emphasizing the connections between them.
