Images of the Underground
Images of the Underground. "...In 1974 the Wisconsin Historical Society Press published an edition called Undergrounds: A Union List of Alternative Periodicals in Libraries of the United States and Canada in a press run of about 750 copies. The work of a graduate student, and later Society newspapers and periodicals librarian James Danky, the book was based on the Society's collection of underground press materials, which bloomed in the 1960s in the U.S. and Canada but had mostly come to an end by the mid-1970s. The Society has one of the largest collections of underground newspapers in the nation, some of which are featured in this month's image gallery from Wisconsin Historical Images, the Society's online image database."
