Abstract (English)

Wolfe recounts the history of the Ontario College of Art and Design from 1967 to 1972, when conservative and progressive forces clashed over the restructuring of the curriculum and the academic and administrative staff. A teacher at the school, Wolfe gives first-hand accounts of the events surrounding the hiring of Roy Ascott as president, his controversial ten-month tenure, and subsequent firing. Facsimiles of press clippings supplement his story, and an appendix gives a chronology of the school’s entire history. Biographical notes.
