John Summerskill, who was threatened with dismissal after his low-key handling of student unrest during his presidency of San Francisco State College in the late 1960s, has died. He was 65. Summerskill died Thursday of liver cancer at his home in Belle Mead, N.J. His tenure at San Francisco was brief--1966 to 1968--but tumultuous as students began a period of protests against the Vietnam War and perceived injustices against blacks.
