THE DIGGERS
San Francisco 1968

The Diggers were a group of folks who tried to help to community by giving out free food, etc. They got arrested whenever the police saw them doing their volunteer work. The recipients are shown here in the at Golden Gate Park's panhandle which ran next to the Haight. Peter Coyote was a Digger.
RUNAWAYS / WHITE FLIGHT

RUNAWAYS / WHITE FLIGHT
San Francisco 1968

As part of my assignment for the Washington Post, I had to visit the Park Police Station next to Golden Gate Park. The runaways were a major problem for San Francisco. My job was to shoot the runaway board. This one shown here was one of several boards there. To me, the problem looked manageable until the police showed me the many drawers full of thousands of photos from all over the world. All these straight-looking middle class white kids ran away to be hippies.
