About This Item

Columbus, Ohio: J.T. & Geo. B. Murphy Co, 1962. Unbound. Near Fine. Sepia toned gelatin silver panoramic photograph. Approximately 40.5" x 10". Captioned in white in the negative. Chip at the upper left corner confined to the margin, else about fine. Currently shrinkwrapped onto a backer board. A fantastically amusing panoramic photo that displays approximately 400 students and faculty members of the famously progressive College (including co-eds and black students), many in outlandish outfits or holding what would seem to be early 1960s protest or other signs, which display both college humor and similar hijinks, but some others with political or sociological ramifications. Among the signs or tableau: a student dressed as Jesus hangs from a cross with other students holding a sign that reads: "He Took The 5th"; a group of young women with Russian-style fur hats hold a sign that reads: "Be the 1st in Your Hall to Join an Antioch Commune"; A series of students holding a string of about a dozen signs that read serially as: "The Rising Tide of American Fascism is Reflected in the Unrestricted Growth of Facial Hair on Small Midwestern Liberal Arts Campuses - Burma Shave"; another: "No-One Dies A Virgin"; another of a goateed stick figure is labeled "Martyr Forker"; women holding a sign that says "The Hardy Chapter of the Birch John Society. We'll Wipe Antioch Clean"; in the background "Cuba Si - Virgin No"; and of course, the always reliable "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?" Of interest is the fact that this semester represents the only semester that the already wildly successful television writer Rod Serling chose to teach a creative course at Antioch, and indeed Serling is pictured seated near the front on the right quadrant of the image, looking at least mildly amused (thanks to Serling-maven Darren Winston for pointing him out to us when it should have been plainly obvious). At any rate, what must certainly represent a very early transitional and visual record of the transformation of beatniks and earnest college kids into hippies and activists. We admit that in general we like our own material, but this one is truly wonderful. Buy it. Or don't.
