Oral history interview with Illinois State Normal University alumnus James Finley, Class of 1971. The interview was conducted on October 17, 1981, by Nancy Magura.
Finley talks about ISU’s growing pains in the late 1960s and early 1970s as the student body shot up from 8,500 to 18,000 students, including crowded conditions and the construction of new buildings. “It was a good mix of tradition and change” in those days, he says.
