"A lot of students knew me and they said, 'there's Suresh' and everyone crawled up after me and pretty soon we were all sitting down on the highway." While the massive protest drew national attention Mathews never did get to see the photos he took that day. When we later went to the photo shop to pick up his prints they told him they'd been lost. "I was pretty sure someone, like the FBI took them."
Mathews will be featured as the 2014 Morgan Thomas Executive Lecturer and will speak about the evolving role of technology from 4:30-6 p.m. Thursday in Centennial Student Union’s Ostrander Auditorium.
The event is free and open to the public, and parking is available in the visitor pay lot outside of the Centennial Student Union.
