This event was the inspiration of Slim Brundage, hobo, Wobbly, writer, and proprietor of the Village coffee house College of Complexes where this convention took place to nominate a beat candidate for the 1960 election. Pictured here are "keynote speaker" Bill Smith, Gnomi Gross "Miss Beatnik of Chicago" (one of the party's leading candidates), and Ambrose (no last name). This appears to be a contemporary reprint of a wire service photo. It's stamped July 28, 1960 on the verso with the word "beatniks" written in ink. Tiny label to verso and some foxing to one edge, not visible from the front, else fine. Scarce ephemera relating to this little-known beatnik political convention (8" x 10"). Bookseller Inventory #
