I have a few copies of 'The RAT,' an underground paper which became
devoted to Women's issues. I sold a few hundred of these at Woodstock,
before I was stopped...that is a story in and of itself....

Anne Marie: UC Berkeley's library had a great collection of alternative newspapers and periodicals in the 60s which I found when researching that topic years ago. Through the Web, you might be able to connect with that library to do the same. It seems that a New York location for a library would no longer be necessary for you. Good luck, Jim Wood
