From: James H. Diggs (, 12/24/95.
I am finally on-line with our newer technologies and am so greatly pleased to find a site that knows of the Diggers. Four and five years ago, I had a project I called "a bridge" using my hand-written and xeroxed pages(an m2m, if you will). That is my attempt to at least talk about a future moneyless, stateless, and godlesss social structure and I did at that time develop a list of respondents to that idea. Which I am now trying to think of ways of getting back in touch with like-minded people.Did I haappen to score with you even though you may not have been on my list of respondents?I have used the term "a bridge" to refer to our transitioning from the present authoritarian, heirarchical, anti-life structureto free,egalitarian structure based upon everyone sharing in the manual labor necessary to meet our joint and mutual human needs. Plesde respond if you have had some of these thoughts before but did not have anyne to express them to. Thank you in advance.

My generation is still alive! Thanks for keeping the faith. It was hard to be free in Tennessee, Georgia, and D.C., so I spent 15 yrs in Africa. Now I'm in Neverland Hawaii and loving life here. Have a good job too. Aloha ...

It is nice coming across tihs page. I lived in SF in the late 60's and 70's. Nice to see Kaliflower and the Angels of Light at least listed. I sometimes wonder what happened to my friends and lovers among them, as well as the Cockettes.
From: Ronald Linthout (Ronald.Linthout_yada@Ping.Be), 12/09/95.
I'm thinking about it for a long time of permitting reviews of the "forgotten" LP's from the lesser-known late sixties artists. Bands like PEPPERMINT RAINBOW, PAPER GARDEN, LOS BRAVOS, LOVE GENERATION, MERCHANTS OF DREAM. AIt should be a tribute to those people who made good-time, happy straightforward melodic orchestrated pop. You know the kind I mean when I'm talking about bands who used a lot of keywords like: love, happy, tambourine, sunshine, rainbow, groovy, summertime, flowers, cotton candy, marshmellows,... titles such as Mr.Flynn's toy shop, the technicolor milkshake (just made these up). There a hundreds of these enjoyable albums, but I will disregard progressive,garage, depressing music (Dylan,Cohen,Jefferson Airplane), country-rock,blues and R&B. Only happy uplifting music! Are you interested? I've got A LOT OF THEM!

To the question about modern Yippies: I don't really know but read Abbie Hoffman's Revolution For the Hell of It, Woodstock Nation, Soon To Be a Major Motion Picture, and Steal This Book. Also read Jerry Rubin's We Are Everywhere. To add to the question: any YIP groups in Portland Oregon? how 'bout weatherpeople? Yippie!
From: Doug Aberley (, 11/29/95.
Eric, you've done a great service. There are histories that are not about male politicians, and war, and the building of the earth into a machine. If the legacy of the hippies, anarchists, anarchist geographers, early feminists, regionalists, etc., can be 'remembered' we have a tremendous head start at nurturing a socially just and ecologically sound future. I am looking into the tie between 1960's era social transformation movements and the contemporary bioregional movement. When I have completed building extensive chronologies I will send them down to you. outlaw memory of reistance and renewal...something far beyonf nostalgia...a map to the territory of hope.

What a surprise to find a Diggers page on the Web! I was only 11 years old and living in my native New York City during the Diggers' most famous period (I hesitate to say "heyday," because I believe the Diggers are still very much alive in the incarnation of Food Not Bombs), and thus too young to have experienced the full range of the Haight-Ashbury scene from 1965-70. But I lived in San Francisco from 1982 to 1994 -- in the Haight from 1987 to 1989 -- and every time I walked down Haight Street, I could feel the sprits of that era still floating through the neighborhood. For years, I've often wondered "where have all the flower children (who are STILL flower children) gone?" At last, I know now where some of them are -- on the Net! And I'd love to exchange memories, thoughts -- whatever -- with them. I'm a new Net kid on the block and sorting my way through before sending e-mail to anyone, but feel free to send some e-mail my way. Thanks for creating this Web site.

I was a Digger back in the '60s in LA. I used to help manage a group known as Green Power Feeds Millions, which fed at protests and love- ins every Sunday at Griffith Park. Later, I became the Yippie pie thrower in NYC. I still hold the same ideals in my heart I held then.

Well this is a suprise to be able to jump from Grogan's book to the a Digger home page. I found myself drawn to the charactor of Grogan which was portrayed in Ringolevio. Growing up in Florida I didn't really get into the scene until it was already over. I am forty-five and still feel twenty five. Been looking for a place to hang my hat so to speak. I live on twelve acres in "Corncob" North Carolina. I have been to San Francisco many times. Hope to check you folks again and look foward to exploring your effort to keep a very viable idea alive. I have quested for many years and look foward to hearing from any one out there who has experianced the life acting traits as so described. Its wonderful to be here. Laine

Cool show though. What happened to Kenneth Wisdom after he finished writting his book? Does he think that ringolevio beats hurley? Has he succumed to the P.J.O'Rourkes of this world? Is he still alive? As a child of a child of the "sixties" I would love to know! REACH OUT AND TOUCH.

(Ok, let me try this again, I'm new to being on-line.) I operate a walking tour of the Haight-Ashbury. I was not here in the 60's; I'm more of an amateur historian. Since most of the people who take the tour are tourists and since I try to include the entire history of the Haight, not just the 60's, my coverage of the Diggers is necessarily rather superficial. I guess my main question is to those of you who were Diggers or who were here in any other capacity: What is the most important point you think I should make to visitors when discussing the 60's in the Haight-Ashbury?

I have not yet checked out your site. I belong to generation W. (That akward generation between hippies and generation X. But the 60s are a part of my intellectual and emotional life. Satori, sex, drugs, wandering, social conscience . . . these are a few of the things I believe I owe to the sixties. The sixties agenda is nowhere near finished, and there are people who are still pushing for things like gender equality or survival from environmental meltdown. I'm one of them. Further thoughts once I have something to say. Cheers, Hermann from Costa Rica

From: Jim Giddings (, 07/14/95.
I'm so glad you're doing this work. I sometimes think the time of the Diggers Free Store in Tucson was a dream, since it went away and left no trace (physically). (Judging from the other comments here I guess this is a guestbook for more than the Diggers Archive.) These dreams have to be kept alive in memory so they can come back to life when the energy arises. Maybe soon!

I am going to point to this wonderful page on my teaching resources for Indians pages, This is running on the Fond du Lac community college server, Fond du Lac Ojibwe reservation in northern MN. "Web Pages and Other Computer Resources for Indian Teachers and Students"" at: This will bring up a "What's new' homepage that has an immediately accessible icon to the Main Menu. About 2/3 down it is a Maya icon (Chichen Itza), w9ich brings up MayaPage of links to other web maya pages, that is in turn linked to Mayamap (sites and some info about each) and Maya2, which explains a videodisk science/math integrated curriculum centering on past and present Maya. I had a hard time getting on your system, this is early morning, presumably light traffic. I see you run on a commercial network. Your access porovider has a severe bottleneck problem. If you are paying much for it, consider a different provider. Our server has its problems at present too, but that's mainly due to the 56kbaud phone line which will be replaced by t-1 later this summer. Well, congratulations on a nice page. Is there a possibility you (or someone) might create an on-line catalog to market these artists' work? I'm very interested in this for Indian artcraft work. The only Indian-controled on-line one I know presently is for Waubemeguil, a Canadian Cree graphic artist, and a phoney who calls himself Turtle Heart.

Eric -- Great pages! More Americans should know about the Diggers -- the ones from San Francisco as well as the English Diggers of the 17th century. You're not only providing a needed public service but making the world a little less lonely for those of us who are working to make it better! Thanks for lifting my spirits on this rainy day in North Carolina.

GLAD to see this! I have long felt the Diggers underrepresented / misrepresented in the historical record such as it is. I am a historian working on similar issues. (My dissertation in progress, on the relationship of art and culture, 1955-75 in the SF Bay Area especially, is tentatively entitled: _The U.S. Blues_. I'd be *very* interested in viewing any and or *all* of the broadsides you have assembled. Thanx on behalf of Diggers everywhere!
