Abstract:
Herbert [Brad] Cleaveland had just graduated from Berkeley and had written a thirteen-page “Letter to Undergraduates” in the SLATE Supplement to the General UC Catalog that called for “open, fierce and thoroughgoing rebellion.” In this interview Cleavland begins by describing how the FSM leadership crystalized over the thirty-one hours the police car was surrounded beginning on October 1, 1964 and goes on to discuss his involvement with the Steering Committee, his observations about various leaders with attention to the role of Jews and women, his efforts to continue the momentum of FSM and his later work for educational reform.
