Timothy Leary, Ph.D., was a respected Harvard psychology professor who became a guru for hundreds of thousands of people, espousing the use of the powerful hallucinogen LSD and other mind-altering drugs as a means of brain change. After he was forced out of academia, Leary became associated with many of the great names of the time, including Aldous Huxley, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and Charlie Mingus. In the mid-1960s, his fame grew to international proportions. He was targeted as "the most dangerous man in America" by the U.S. government and given a 10-year sentence for possession of marijuana. After he was released from prison, he continued to advocate brain-change through various means, including computer software. He acted in a number of movies, and was well-regarded as a stand-up comedian/philosopher. He died of cancer in 1996.
