"Gatewood Galbraith: The Last Free Man in America"

June 19 - July 28 - SCRC Great Hall & Lobby - M.I. King Library

The University of Kentucky Libraries Special Collections Research Center has opened, “Gatewood Galbraith: The Last Free Man in America,” which explores the life and work of this Kentucky icon whose outsized life had an impact not only on the state, but also the country. “Gatewood,” as he was simply known throughout the Commonwealth, was a vocal advocate for ending the prohibition of cannabis, which resulted in close friendships with country singer Willie Nelson, politician Ralph Nader and actor Woody Harrelson, as well as a national reputation. As a perennial candidate and well-known cultural figure, Gatewood's legacy is celebrated through photographs, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, documents, and more.
