Carol Bellamy, New York City Council President, spoke in Rockefeller Hall about urban problems. Bellamy said that city dwellers were moving from New York City to the suburbs and the South, leaving the elderly and the poor behind. She also asserted that the city’s financial problems were due to official negligence.

Bellamy later served as director of the Peace Corps from 1993-1995 and executive director of UNICEF from 1995-2005.
