Synopsis: The quiet Eisenhower years followed by the radical anti-war years of the 1960s brought the formation of numerous activist groups across the nation's college campuses. Surrounded by a town dominated by machine politics, red-necked bigotry and segregated off-campus housing, San Jose State University was no exception. The conservative, almost all-white campus was then home campus to Olympic boycotter Tommie Smith - and it had its share of black activists and white anti-war protesters. As students became inexorably drawn into the common cause of campus radicals, a new society fueled by hope for the future became a rallying point for thousands of Bay area youths and their dreams. Author Timothy K. Fitzgerald records this surprising 'coming of age' story set in San Francisco's Bay Area, and his experiences and those of other key figures during this pivotal time in history when color barriers were finally broken and the formation of a new brotherhood of comrades was underway. This is their story. "The story of the civil rights and anti-war activism that engulfed San Jose State University during the 1960s is still relevant in today's world. Tim K. Fitzgerald's work reminds all of us that the basic issues which divided our nation then - a questionable war in a foreign land and the fight for equality at home - continue to haunt our society.'' -Jim Beall, Jr., California State Assembly, District 24 "Timothy K. Fitzgerald played an important, one might even say key, role. His account of the changes and of his participation in them is fascinating." -George E. Moore, Former Chair, SJSU Academic Senate, Chair Emeritus History Dept. SJSU Timothy K. Fitzgerald is an accomplished writer and Silicon Valley activist who has taught history, politics, and economics in community colleges in California. He graduated from San Jose State University in 1971 and is now completing a third Master's Degree in related subjects. Tim was also an expert Yosemite rock climber, and likewise includes those adventures herein. This volume is the first of a trilogy of his memoirs - The Quest: Revolution, Revelation, Redemption - relating to America's social history. Tim is currently working on the third installment of his Cold War era memoirs entitled, Pursuit of the Dragon Fly. http://sbpra.com/TimothyKFitzgerald
From the Author:
This work, as the first of a series in the set "THE QUEST: REVOLUTION, REVELATION, REDEMPTION" was begun almost 30 years ago. And was 10 years in recent crafting as part of a story of my life in Silicon Valley begining with my unusual family life in the mid fifties, and highlighing in this volume my college years as an undergraduate where I became a leading spokesperson for reform of college policy plaguing most colleges and universities coming out of World War II and the dominance of "En Loco Prentise" as a form of "ABSENT PARENT" - an attitude taken by college disciplinary practices that ham-strung youthful protest and political activism throughout the United States.
Taking a leaf from Tom Hayden's PORT HURON STATEMENT we worked to modify campus governing processes that led to the successful adoption of an ALL COLLEGE: Student - Faculty governing system still in use at San Jose State University where its implementation liberated student activism in Civil Rights and Anti-War Protest. Leading to key changes throughout the Bay Area in the area of racial prejudice and segretation and discrimination. An Important book documenting the critical history of the era. As do the other volumes.

Just a decade after Leave It to Beaver, the turbulent 1960s became a time of rioting and unrest. Protests against the Vietnam War in America reached a crescendo as the decade came to a close, and many life-long friendships were forged in the heat of solidarity. The anti-war years bred numerous activist groups across the nation s college campuses. San Jose was a California town dominated by machine politics, bigotry and segregated off-campus housing. The university saw its share of black activists and white anti-war protesters. Wawona Brotherhood: The San Jose State Campus Revolt is a remembrance of that time, giving an account of the civil rights movement in the Bay Area, when SJSU s student body crossed the color line to elect the first black student to lead any campus in State College history. This was a crowning achievement for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and for human rights, without which the story of Barack Obama s victory would be incomplete. Author Tim Fitzgerald, a mountaineer from Yosemite Valley, was one of the students drawn into the radical cause on campus. Together with Cognitive Psychology Movement leader Bob Prentky, liberal cause activist Richard Miner, and Olympic Boycott organizer James Edwards, a new society united by a cause of racial equality and hope for the future soon became a rallying point for young people. Tim Fitzgerald s work reminds all of us that the basic issues which divided our nation then a questionable war in a foreign land and the fight for equality at home continue to haunt our society.
