Welcome to FSM-A

We offer: a spectrum of opinions on what FSM was, information about Mario Savio, perspectives on what happened in the FSM.  There's an extensive suite of documents of the conflict, from all sides.

The FSM didn't happen in isolation. Here's information on the rich history that led to the FSM and the complex developments that followed from it. We plan to show how the FSM has been treated as "history".

Who was involved and what became of them? Read about public commemorations organized by FSM veterans and reports on projects to memorialize the FSM. 

Barbara Stack's Bibliography of subsequent journalism.
[Bibliography is frequently updated and is now off this site at .]

The Gallery shows photos from FSM history and more recent events. The veterans' affairs section discusses the FSM Archives' activities and our search for missing vets.

We invite your personal thoughts, news of what you are doing now, writings about your FSM experiences, information to share about other FSM Vets who are doing and accomplishing things. OpEd pieces about current events associated with free speech issues or other issues are welcome.
