Shownotes with related links:

Marianne Accardi Giardini came to Dowling in 1969, following in the footsteps of her brother who had attended Adelphi Suffolk College earlier. She married fellow student Vinne Giardini in 1971 and the two remained in the area for many years as a part of the Oakdale community. In this ten minute interview, excerpted from a longer oral history archived at the Dowling Library, Marianne describes life in the early seventies. She introduces us to the Guerilla Theatre that was active on campus in the aftermath of the Kent State shootings and her work with the Loft Theatre and elsewhere.

This interview is cross posted with our blog Born in the Sixties: The First Year of Dowling College, 1968-69.
