I owe an immense debt to my content editor, M.E. Truckenmiller who spent countless hours on the alchemy of converting ideas and imagery into smoothly flowing text.  She stood her ground until her standards were met.  M.E. is also an accomplished photographer, artist and graphic artist and created the layout for the cover and all of the cover graphics. She took the photograph circa 1970  that is the core of the cover graphics.  Further examples of her work over the last forty five years can be viewed on this link.


A truly remarkable film of the 1970 riots,  taken, edited and narrated by Larry Nimmer during his first quarter as a student at Berkeley.  He captured a brief sequence of the Sather Gate slingshot in action, and there are shots of a dog that might be the tear gas canister fetching dog.

A series of still shots of anti-war riots taken on Berkeley’s south side of campus.
