Former UF faculty activist leader Dr .. Marshall Bush Jones, a WWII Navy Medical Service Corps veteran, was interviewed by Marna Weston [W] on March 9, 2009 . Jones, denied tenure at the University of Florida in 1968, became professor and chairman of behavioral science at Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, where he spent 35 years . He authored available at the UF Library special collection . W : When you wrote Berkeley of the South, who were you writing it to? was not so much the actions, as their W: Your case of tenure denial is still one of those seminal moments with academic freedom as people look at it today.

Conner concluded, quote, my primary reason is that he has publicly urged in speech and print and principle of action, which is contrary to and potentially destructive of the principles of which true universities are supposed to be organized. Dr. Jones principle set forth in a Kappa Delta Pi article, The Role of the Faculty and Student Rebellion, delivered on this campus and published in the Educational Forum of January 1966, is that the only practicable way in achieved inside or outside a university, is by rebellion and that democratic and other ordinate processes are merely means of ratifying and implementing the changes as forced.
