The View From the Castle: The next Smithsonian symposium will take up the mass use of drugs, and try to set it into an explanatory framework
Number four of the Smithsonian Institution's revived symposia, which was scheduled for November 16-19, 1970, was to discuss the present-day quest for social identity and the mass phenomenon drug usage in the United States. Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley also mentions information about "the psychedelic mystique" developed by Professor Nathan Adler of Berkley.
