Haight Street Hippies of Sixty Seven
Our recent feature on Beatniks traced the evolution from beatniks to hippies and dwelled briefly on the early hippies in 1967 San Francisco. The term was first coined in 1965 by San Francisco journalist Michael Fallon to describe some of the beatniks who had moved from North Beach to the Haight-Ashbury district – these must have been the early trailblazers along with the likes of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters.
