August 28, 1993

KENT, OHIO ! — KENT, Ohio -- Glenn W. Frank, a retired Kent State University professor who helped calm the campus after four were fatally shot during a 1970 anti-war protest, died Wednesday of cancer. He was 65.

Then a faculty marshal, he was credited with helping disperse students after the Ohio National Guard fired at protesters on May 4, 1970. Four students died; nine were hurt.

The ex-Marine later spoke out against the shootings and denounced the work of a state grand jury that investigated the campus unrest. He testified before the grand jury and was cited for contempt of court for breaking a judge's gag order not to talk about the investigation. He pleaded guilty to contempt.
