Fear and Loathing at UC Santa Cruz #KeeperoftheDay

KOTD-UCSC-Hunter-Thompson-Card

UC Santa Cruz recently received a significant Hunter S. Thompson collection.

From UC Santa Cruz Magazine:

UC Santa Cruz Special Collections & Archives recently received an 800-volume collection of works by famed author and journalist Hunter S. Thompson.

The campus received the gift from Eric C. Shoad, who is the author of Gonzology, an extensive bibliography of Thompsons work.

Shoaf had no previous connection to the campus, but he said, “I found UC Santa Cruz to be an institution young enough to accept the collection and to appreciate it for what it represents and how it dovetails and augments the Grateful Dead archive.”

Good Times, the Santa Cruz weekly did a big old cover story about the collection. Read that here.
