The NYPL has purchased 335 boxes of papers, photos and videotapes from academic-turned-acid guru Timothy Leary. The documents feature detailed drop out session accounts with counter-culture celebs and scribbled gab on “the sexiest season in the long annals of the human race,” the summer of ’69.

By collecting and displaying these artifacts, the NYPL wants to “demystify the sixties,” thereby crapping on a certain kind of kids’ comforting nostalgia for a decade they’ve never lived.
