Lincoln, Nebraska’s “younger” avant-garde

“Younger” because Pat Brougham, George Eade, John Powers, Joe Knight, Ron Barzydlo and others were my peers, mostly freshmen at the U. of Nebraska in Lincoln. The problem is, we didn’t have cameras. I don’t have my own picture from that year, 1965-66.
I have an image of the book of 50 poems I printed, titled A Year’s Worth of Wonder: 1965-1966. Steve Abbott drew the cover, and Grady Waugh wrote an introduction. Grady Waugh (from a later photograph) was a guitarist and my roommate at the time we hosted the big party for Allen Ginsberg at our apartment on W Street. Darlene Barnes was always on scene.
