California State University, Dominguez Hills: CSUDH Gerth Archives Obtains L.A. Free Press Collection

California State University, Dominguez Hills: CSUDH Gerth Archives Obtains L.A. Free Press Collection. “The CSUDH Gerth Archives and Special Collections just got a lot ‘freakier’ with the acquisition of the archives of the L.A. Free Press, one of the first and most important underground newspapers of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The collection had belonged to Art Kunkin, the publisher and editor of the Free Press from its inception in 1964 until 1972. When Kunkin passed away in 2019 at the age of 91, his daughter began looking for an archive to house the large collection. She chose the Gerth Archives due to their dedication to archiving alternative voices from the local community.”
