Emmett Grogan

Biography

Emmett Grogan was the leading figure of San Francisco anarchist collective, the Diggers, who were the heart and soul of the Haight-Ashbury scene of the 60s. As America's most famous invisible man, he became part fact, part fiction and part self-creation, and, intriguingly, a name and identity for others to use when they ran into trouble with the law, as well as being a symbol behind which people rallied their imaginations. Bob Dylan's Street Legal album was dedicated to his memory. Emmett Grogan died in 1978.
