One From Bowling Green News says The BGSU Library Archives declined Tiger Force papers in fall 2002.
Jerome Library officials refused the chance to permanently house a 30,000-page collection of original Vietnam War trial papers in October 2002.
The Bowling Green News says while these documents may have been a better "fit" for another institution, the Jerome Library should have been more than willing to accommodate them.
"The papers are important because they force Americans to confront American warfare at its worst," Hess said. "It's hard for me to understand why the University would not have grabbed the papers."
