American editor and publisher of "The Realist," 1958-1974, the first underground journal of the era which managed to shock and outrage his admiring readers with political scurrility, social and politically iconoclastic.

A very hip guy, he spent a period of time doing standup acid comedy in the tradition of Mort Sahl and Lenny Bruce. In 1986, he put "The Realist" back into print, doing battle with the establishment and the forces of respectability.
