On March 3, 1972, Zoia Horn, formerly a librarian at Bucknell University, was called as a government witness in the trial of the Harrisburg Seven. She refused to testify, instead reading a statement to the court that said in part: Your honor, it is because I respect the function of this court to protect the rights of the individual, that I must refuse to testify. The judge ordered Ms. Horn jailed for contempt. The American Library Associations Executive Board refused publicly to support Horns stand against the governments attempts to intimidate and silence Vietnam War protesters. Only after subjecting her to hours of grueling questioning months later did the Board reverse the decision, officially commending her commitment...in defense of intellectual freedom.
