Tiananmen went unmentioend at commencement

(The Tech received a copy of this letter addressed to President Paul E. Gray '54.)

I am deeply disappointed that no statement was made during the MIT commencement exercises commemorating the first anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Commencement fell on June 4 this year, exactly one year after a tragedy which shocked the world. The Chinese students and workers who died in the name of democracy deserved at least a moment's remembrance.
