Abstract

This interview was conducted as part of Cleveland State University's 50th Anniversary Commemoration effort. Becker is a native Clevelander and is currently CSU's archivist. Becker enrolled at CSU in the fall of 1969, majoring in history. Following graduation he received a scholarship and received his M.A. in History from CWRU in 1974. He later returned to CSU to become the university's archivist after finishing his degree and has served in that position ever since. Of particular interest is Becker's detailed account of the events that unfolded at CSU following the Kent State Shootings, his description of the faculty in the history department during the university's early years, and the changes that have taken place with both the library and the campus broadly over the years.
