Brandeis 50th Anniversary Page

Abbie Hoffman--class of 1959 and co-founder of the Yippies, a counter-culture organization--gave a speech at Brandeis on April 29, 1972. He was quoted in The Justice as saying, "I learned one thing; you never do anything for fame or money. You only do things 'cause they're fun or good. If you can combine the two at the same time, you can make a contribution to the world and have a lot of happiness."
