Fifty years ago, the Dead were smuggled into Ferris Booth Hall at Columbia University and placed a hidden free afternoon show to striking students. Happy 50th on May 3! The Columbia Spectator says they did the Dew that day.

Dead Essays says
5/3/68 Columbia University, NYC (free afternoon show) [Morning Dew (per newspaper report)]
This show was filmed – the video confirms that the Cryptical>Other One suite was played. Setlist attributions have come from album songs that were dubbed over the film.
