[Broadside]: Free Xmas & Eviction Celebration

[San Francisco: 1967].

Price: $275.00

Unbound. Single mimeographed yellow sheet. Very good with vertical and horizontal folds and some light wear along the top edge. An original flyer for the Happening House, an alternative university developed as a cooperative by San Francisco University and the young people of the Haight-Ashbury community by SFU Professor Leonard Wolf. Wolf had developed the idea from an encounter with Allen Cohen during the Love Book protest readings. The house, located at 409 Clayton Street, served as a meeting place for encounter groups, cooking instruction, natural childcare talks, and gestalt therapy sessions. This flyer advertises an impending eviction as "police theater" performance art. The building was saved by Doctor David E. Smith who set up the Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic in its place, but would later anger residents by using the clinic's patients as research subjects for various drug studies, medical articles, and various other schemes. An interesting artifact of counter culture history from the Haight-Ashbury scene of the late '60s. Scarce.
