Text from the editorial

Throwback Thursday


From the April 8, 1968 issue of Synapse, the editor's response to the death of Martin Luther King, Jr:

"The Medical Center, because of its specialized nature and goal orientation, tends to be insular in relation to the larger context of society... In view of the events of the past week, which culminated in the tragic death of Reverend King, we do not see how it is possible to remain uninvolved... it seems to us that there is a responsibility to become aware of what is happening and to consider at length the possible ramifications of events which take place outside one's own little world."
