Madison's First Underground Newspaper, 1967-1969


Started by Stuart Ewen and Bob Gabriner in the spring of 1967, Connections was issued biweekly (more or less) during the height of Madison's anti-war protests. Its writers and artists commented on politics, the arts, drugs, music, literature, and events at the Univ. of Wisconsin, as well as advertising concerts, plays, and counter-culture shops and services. As with other examples of the underground press, readers should be prepared to encounter occasional profanity, nudity, and other potentially disturbing content.
