For three days in June of 1967, Glassboro, NJ, became a news item - it was the meeting place of then President Lyndon Baines Johnson and Soviet Union Premier Alexei Kosygin to discuss US-Soviet relations. The meeting took place at the Hollybush Mansion on the campus of then-Glassboro State College. At the time, the U.S. was involved in the Vietnam conflict and on June 5, 1967, the Six-Day War between Israel and the Arab states erupted. As a response to this conflict and in effort to increase cooperation and relations between the U.S. and Soviet Union, the two agreed to meet, but President Johnson wanted a neutral place. Since Kosygin was speaking at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City and Johnson was in Washington, D.C., a halfway point was needed and Glassboro was determined to be the ideal spot for the Summit.
