Sharon Pike holds a peace sign clock, which she purchased around the time of the MU protest of the Vietnam War on May 11, 1970. Pike said she didn't actually want to participate in the protests but walked out of a lecture hall on Francis Quadrangle to find more than 3,000 people demonstrating and was unable to leave because of how crowded the area had become with protesters.
