The “How Many More” 16-mm film by De Bolt includes a pamphlet inside the film canister. The film documents events at CMU including 4,000 protestors at Finch Fieldhouse and 5,000 people marching through the streets of Mount Pleasant, Michigan. Both events occurred on October 15, 1969. A November 14, 1969 memorial service, teach in at Ferris State College is document, as well as another rally at Finch with 500 people, and loading busses for marches in Washington, D.C., on November 15, 1969. There are also national shots and period protest songs. The film was created via grant funds CMU was awarded. The original film was re-edited after it “migrated” to a New York (State) University, where it still resides. A VCR tape of the film is available.

An 8-mm untitled film footage of the 1970 student occupation of Main Hall, the old Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) building is also included. An information card resides with the film footage.
