NEW YORK (AP) — A trove of Timothy Leary files could shed new light on the LSD guru, his controversial research into psychedelic drugs and the emergence of the '60s counterculture.
The New York Public Library acquired the vast archive for an undisclosed sum from the Leary estate in 2011. It is making the material available Wednesday for the first time to scholars and the public.
Leary was fired as a psychology lecturer at Harvard and coined the phrase "turn on, tune in, drop out." He advocated the therapeutic use of psychedelic drugs including LSD.
Much of the material is previously unpublished. Leary estate trustee Denis Berry says it will force a reworking of the current narratives on Leary and the counterculture.
Leary died in 1996.
