GLOUCESTER COUNTY, N.J. — For two days in 1967, Glassboro police Capt. Philip J. Coppolino stood outside the Hollybush Mansion on the Rowan University campus, scanning the crowd, helping to provide security for the two world leaders holed up inside trying to defuse Cold War tensions.
The face-to-face encounter between President Lyndon B. Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin became known as the Glassboro Summit. It has been celebrated since by Rowan University — then Glassboro State College — and referenced in historical accounts.
