Never, or at least rarely, in the course of human endeavor has such a motley assemblage gathered to foist upon the world yet another college literary magazine. In this case it was “Parnassus” (yikes) Vol I, Number 1, of which emerged, mewling & puking, some time in 1965 or so from the bowels of Northern Essex Community College, in Haverhill, Massachusetts. One of the people in this picture went on to become Poet Laureate of Alaska. Honest. It surprised me too.
