John Maher

John Maher came of age in the 1960s and has been in the thick of things ever since, as an organizer, a factory worker, a school teacher and an educator. In his book ‘Learning from the Sixties,’ he traces his progress from a privileged background in Houston, Texas, to volunteering as an anti-war activist, to becoming a leader of the New Left. Along the way, he amassed a 2,000-page FBI file and a place on the FBI’s list of the top 40 leaders of ‘the opposition.’
