Students marching with banner
Description: Several young adults lead a march carrying a banner that reads "Houston or Bust In God We Trust" along North High Street in the University District of Columbus, Ohio. The University District includes the small neighborhoods to the east and south of The Ohio State University campus on either side of the High Street corridor. The message on this banner is likely in reference to an event called "Millennium ’73" which took place at the Houston Astrodome in November 1973. This three-day New Age spiritual happening was hosted by the Divine Light Mission and featured a 15-year-old guru named Maharaj Ji from India. Prior to the Houston event, a caravan of hundreds of attendees traveled from the East Coast holding promotional events in eight cities along the way, which included Columbus. The High Street Photograph Collection is comprised of over 400 photographs of High Street in Columbus, Ohio, taken in the early 1970s. These photographs were taken primarily at street level and document people and the built environment from the Pontifical College Josephinum on North High Street in Worthington through Clintonville, the University District and Short North, Downtown and South Columbus. The photographs were used in a television photo documentary that aired on WOSU called "High Street." Photographers that were involved in this project were Alfred Clarke, Carol Hibbs Kight, Darrell Muething, Clayton K. Lowe, and Julius Foris, Jr. View on Ohio Memory.
