HARTFORD, Connecticut Nearly 100 pieces of memorabilia - including unwashed
socks - that belonged to the 1960s activist Abbie Hoffman are on display at
the University of Connecticut.
The items include declassified FBI documents related to his arrest at the
Democratic National Convention in Chicago in 1968. They will be exhibited
through May 25. In 1968, Hoffman started the Youth International Party, the
Yippies, to bring together radicals to protest the Vietnam War.
His family donated the collection to the university after his suicide in
1989 at age 52.
