Susan Glaser Oral History
Scope and Contents
Susan Glaser, daughter of immigrants, grew up in Jamaica, Queens, and attended Queens College in the second half of the 1960s. In this interview, she reminisces fondly about her time in the campus and how much she enjoyed an active social life as a member and later president of the Doll House house plan. She also reflects on how political events like Nixon’s campaign for the presidency and the shooting of Martin Luther King Jr. occurred during her student years, and how everything seemed to be changing at the time and how even the house plans that she loved would disappear as Queens College students became more politically active.
