While trolling the newspapers (T2011.001.005) on an unrelated project we came across this very interesting story of a global thinking in Salem in 1957. Spurred on by the 1956 revolution in Hungary (quashed by the Soviets by 1957), the Willamette University UNESCO group started looking into ways to bring Hungarian students to the WU campus. Through the cooperation of area churches, Meier and Frank and the Willamette Student body, they came up with a plan to raise enough funds to pay tuition, board and offer a part-time job. The article was published by the Capital Journal on April 12, 1957. We don’t know if the plan came to fruition or not.
