In 1970, the Vietnam war continued. In May of that year, National Guardsmen opened fire on a group of students, on the campus of Kent State University and kill 4 students. The The Beatles released Let It Be, their last album. 18 year olds received the right to vote in federal elections. And, Pork Lovers Anonymous was founded by a group of graduate students at the University of Minnesota.
The group originated, because these students and their friends need an organization name to reserve a site in a park for a picnic. The group continued to sponsor gatherings and outings in the early '70's.
The events included cookouts, river canoe trips, winter picnics and house parties. The images, which depict some of the events, were taken from negatives almost 40 years old.
This book is deducted to all of those Pork Lovers Anonymous members who contributed to the friendship and camaraderie that enriched our lives in that period, and provided a wealth of fond memories during the passing years. – You know who you are.
