    This poster is currently unbacked. At check out, you will be given the opportunity to add backing which would cost $65 and take approximately 4 weeks.

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and give support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself. Backing is what we recommend for framing, and for any poster needing restoration.

    Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, 438 U.S. 265 (1978) was a landmark decision by the Supreme Court of the United States. It upheld affirmative action, allowing race to be one of several factors in college admissions. The specific program challenged, that of the University of California, Davis School of Medicine, set aside 16 out of 100 seats for minority students—this was ruled to be an impermissible quota.

    From a collection of over 100 posters collected in the 1970s at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
