This Week In '66 - Annette Buchanan


With Lynn Peril

Annette Buchanan was the brave, principled 20-year-old managing editor of the University of Oregon’s campus newspaper. In 1966, she interviewed seven students about their positive experiences with pot and kept their identities anonymous when the story was printed. When the district attorney asked for the students’ names so he could “clean up campus,” she stuck to her journalistic ethics and said no. She also refused to identify her sources when hauled before a grand jury–twice. Perhaps timely in light of yesterday’s star witness at the January 6th hearings, Annette Buchanan’s story was in the news This Week in ‘66.

This Week In '66


With Lynn Peril

It’s Wednesday, and that means a new episode of This Week in ‘66! On June 26, 1966, James Meredith led 16,000 people to the Mississippi state capitol at Jackson for a massive rally. The March Against Fear had covered 261 miles, and registered 4000 new voters along the way. Also in the news, a murder led the British government to crack down on pirate radio stations in the Thames estuary, and the jury in a Pasadena, California, obscenity trial was literally a captive audience as six “dirty” books were read aloud in court.
