    More Details Hide Details This book focuses on the battle between Pete Rozelle and Al Davis over the 1982 move of the Oakland Raiders to Los Angeles. The book also covers several of the National Football League's other controversies of that era.
  • THIRTIES
  • 1980
    Age 34
    In March 1980, Lowenstein was shot to death by Harris's onetime friend Dennis Sweeney, another Lowenstein protégé.
    More Details Hide Details Two years later, Harris wrote the book Dreams Die Hard about his experiences throughout the 1960s and 1970s with Lowenstein and Sweeney and about the events leading up to the shooting. He has written several other books, as well as many articles for the Rolling Stone, the New York Times Magazine and other periodicals.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1975
    Age 29
    Harris was later married to author and New York Times reporter Lacey Fosburgh from 1975 until her death in 1993.
    More Details Hide Details Harris and Fosburgh had one daughter together, Sophie Harris.
    In 1975, Harris ran unsuccessfully as a Democrat for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives from a district that included the northern part of Silicon Valley.
    More Details Hide Details At Stanford, Harris was a protégé of Allard K. Lowenstein, a political organizer and later one-term Democratic congressman from New York. In 1968, Lowenstein's Dump Johnson movement resulted in Johnson's refusal to run for re-election.
  • 1970
    Age 24
    He was released on parole in October 1970.
    More Details Hide Details After his release, he gave talks about the experience. He said: "In prison, I lost my ideals, but not my principles."
  • 1968
    Age 22
    Between 1968 and 1973, Harris was married to singer and activist Joan Baez.
    More Details Hide Details Baez related the story of his arrest to the audience during one of her performances at the Woodstock Festival, in which, while Harris was being arrested, anti-Vietnam War protesters were pasting a "resist the draft" bumper sticker on the police car. Imprisonment didn't improve their marriage; after Harris returned, they filed for divorce. Harris and Baez had one son together, Gabriel Harris, born in December 1969. Gabriel attended the private Peninsula School in Menlo Park, which his mother had also attended. Gabriel is a drummer who sometimes tours with his mother.
  • 1967
    Age 21
    In 1967, Harris founded an organization called The Resistance, which persuaded young men of draft age to refuse to cooperate with the Selective Service System—to return all draft cards, including exemptions and deferments, and refuse to be drafted; and to work together to end the Vietnam War.
    More Details Hide Details Within a few years, the Selective Service System discovered that only about half of the men sent draft notices actually showed up for their draft physicals. The number of casual no-shows was too great to prosecute them all—some of them might have made a simple mistake—so the authorities only prosecuted a few leaders of The Resistance. When Harris received his draft notice, he chose neither to report nor to flee to Canada, as actual draft evaders had done. Eventually, Harris was arrested and convicted of "draft evasion"sic, a federal felony. He was sentenced to a term in federal prison. He served about 15 months in various minimum- to medium-security prisons, where he led several hunger strikes: this provided an occasion for transfer to another prison.
  • 1966
    Age 20
    In 1966, he was elected student body president at Stanford, serving a one-year term.
    More Details Hide Details As a counter-protest, Harris's head was forcibly shaved by a gang of masked members of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity that had many football players as members and apparently a pro-war outlook. Harris was also future Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's dormitory RA during Romney's sole year at Stanford.
  • TEENAGE
