1972 First Passport
If you know me now you will most likely chuckle when you see this photo from thirty five years ago. It is the photo for my first passport . It reflects the fashion of the time, as well as my "radicalization" which occurred about 1970 related to the political struggles of the time. Most notable was the Cambodian Invasion and the killings by National Guard troops at Kent State -- actions which shut down the University of Washington with student protests (as was the case across the country). The coat and tie reflects the fashion of the British at the time when it was common to see laborers in sports coats, and the proper professional British citizen would were only suits.
