Art in the San Francisco Bay Area, 1945-80. by Thomas Albright University of California Press, Copyright 1985. typed 1july1996 98w

Events took place which a few years later, especially in the art world in New York, would be publicized as "happenings," but which in this more innocent place and time were seen simply as wild parties..
