I recommend this article, which gives an interesting account of Judge Roberts’ time at Harvard and the problems he (and other prominent conservatives) faced in the mid-1970s. The article speaks of a “small cluster” of conservatives who were a “ridiculed minority.”
A similar situation remains for conservatives on today’s campuses. It’s too bad that universities haven’t changed, but it’s never too late for colleges to get serious about intellectual diversity.
