I got my radical start at FUNY. I was working for the Welfare Department and
recruited by Arlene Brown. Arlene introduced me to Sharon and Allen Krebs and
I helped paint the walls of that 14th St. loft. I took classes with Jim
Mellon and became friends with Paul Krassner. Although the Progressive Labor
Party was a behind the scenes major player in setting up FUNY the "academic"
atmosphere was wildly pluralistic. I think that a strong part of the
anti-imperialistic politics that would later be embraced and developed by the
Weatherman got their ideological start at the Free U, and so did some of the
spirit that would be Yippie.
After a year or so, (1965) I hit the road for Berkeley where I helped set
up the Free University of Berkeley (FUB) working with Jeff Lustig and Bob
Mates. And that is another story.
