"King's Garbage Truck" in The Maine Campus
(Orono), (University of Maine), (1970). Vol. 78, No. 28, April 7 [sic], 1970. "Steve King," as he was known at the time, contributes another installment of his column, a freewheeling essay that is part personal reflection, part social commentary, and part history. It begins "Well, this is almost it - the garbage truck is almost out of gas. Barring accident, death or insanity, I expect to graduate in a few weeks, so the garbage truck has just about rolled its last mile - three or four columns and that will be it...," leading into a reflection of his life and times up to 1962. The two cover stories of this issue are about protests against the Vietnam war, including the shooting deaths of four Kent State University students at an antiwar protest earlier in the week. (The shootings were on May 4, 1970, indicating the date of this issue is erroneous.) 11-1/2" x 17", 12 pages, printed on newsprint. Very good. Scarce. [#032791] SOLD

All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.
