Gilbert Shelton, ‘60s Texas Dissident

There's a fun article called The Spies of Texas up at The Texas Observer that details the findings in recently discovered 1960s University of Texas campus police files. Among those findings was evidence of what writer Thorne Dreyer calls "the complex political and social currents that were washing over the campus four decades ago," basically the files on counter-culture figures in the area. Among those figures is cartooning great Gilbert Shelton.
