Fifty years ago, a year-old Berkeley College dropout and journalist named Jann Wenner was cobbling together a new kind of magazine that, in his words, would take rock music seriously. The first issue of Rolling Stone appeared in print on November 9th, Over the next 50 years, more than a thousand issues and counting would follow. Now celebrating its golden anniversary, the magazine is one of the few continuously-running chronicles of pop culture, politics, film, art in American history. The three-floor display includes a miscellany of items from hand-penned notes from Hunter S.

Thompson was born in Louisville, Kentucky, served in the Air Force, and worked as a journalist in Puerto Rico before moving to San Francisco, where an article about the Hells Angels turned into a book project.

He first rose to prominence with the publication of Hell's Angels , a book for which he spent a year living and riding with the Hells Angels motorcycle gang in order to write a first-hand account of the lives and experiences of its members. In , he wrote an unconventional magazine feature titled " The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved " for Scanlan's Monthly which both raised his profile and established him as a writer with counterculture credibility. It also set him on a path to establishing his own sub-genre of New Journalism which he called "Gonzo," which was essentially an ongoing experiment in which the writer becomes a central figure and even a participant in the events of the narrative. Thompson remains best known for Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas , a book first serialized in Rolling Stone in which he grapples with the implications of what he considered the failure of the s counterculture movement. The Doonesbury cartoon character Duke — who was modeled after Thompson — pens an essay about "my shoplifting conviction" titled "Fear and Loathing at Macy's Menswear", a reference to Thompson's book.
