Ken Kesey, 1976

5 Feb

“I’d rather be a skinny dog with no fleas than be a fat dog scratching all the time.”

Ken Kesey spins a metaphor about the importance of keeping it local. The footage was shot in 1976 at his farm in Pleasant Hill, Oregon, on KEZI-TV, the local ABC affiliate in Eugene, Oregon. The University of Oregon Libraries holds Kesey’s manuscript collection, but a wealth of Kesey film can be found in the local TV news collection, as well.
