Radical Education: Hobohemia, Slim Brundage and the College of Complexes

The Hobo Philospher or the Modern Diogenes by Roger Payne, B.A., L.L.B., 1930.

Before punks, hippies, and beatniks there were hobohemians. Born in reaction to an increasingly urban and industrial American society, these radicals combined a working class consciousness with a rejection of rampant materialism to create a bulwark against a rising tide of greed and exploitation. The Hobohemia Collection gives a glimpse into this subculture through the writings and artifacts of two prominent hobohemians, Jack Sheridan (1905-1967) and Slim Brundage (1903-1990).
