Photograph of Glenn Weiser in a Crowd of Antiwar Demonstrators at the November 1969 Moratorium from Life magazine, 1970 (detail)

The photo below was taken at the November 1969 Moratorium in Washington, D.C., the largest antiwar protest of the 1960s. I was among a tightly packed crowd of antiwar demonstrators who had fallen harmlessly into a heap when I saw a photographer kneeling with his camera. High on Orange Sunshine LSD, I grinned at him as he snapped the shot. It turned out he was Barton Silverman, a staffer for the New York Times, and his photo won an award from Life magazine in which it was published early in 1970. In the picture, I am the grinning white kid with glasses whose face is turned toward the camera and level with woman's scarf in the foreground. I scanned this faded and folded page 31 years later.-GW
