Description

OH 438-01: Dexter Roberts describes his relationship to Ed Lahey as fellow colleagues in the University of Montana English department throughout the late 1960s and early 1970s. Roberts tells about a number of political activism activities against the Vietnam War in which both he and Lahey took part, including a sit-in in downtown Missoula, Montana and a demonstration at the ROTC building on campus. Roberts recounts several anecdotes of some of the stranger encounters with Lahey, a man known for his eccentricities. Roberts and Gibbons discuss the merits of Lahey's poetry and his lasting impact on Missoula’s literary history.
