Life Magazine called the 1960s “A Divided Decade” that defied efforts to classify and label it.

LIFE Magazine’s ... Life Magazine called the 1960s “A Divided Decade” that defied efforts to classify and label it. There was a feeling of hope and optimism as old barriers of race, gender and lifestyle began to break down. At the same time, a wave of violence and unrest was sweeping across the US. LIFE Magazine’s stories captured the hope and cynicism that were the hallmark of a tumultuous decade. The political scene alone, with the space race, civil rights movement, feminist movement, anti-war movement, Cuban Missile Crisis, the Watts race riots and the assassinations of President Kennedy, Malcom X and Martin Luther King, Jr. would have been enough but they also covered the cultural revolution - from The Beatles to communes to Woodstock and Peanuts

One of the most important stories that LIFE Magazine would ever cover was the Vietnam War. From sending photographers to the front line to covering the stories of draft dodgers and deserters, LIFE Magazines during the 1960s explored every aspect of the most highly televised conflict in history. One of LIFE’s most memorable stories was from an issue published on June 27, 1969. Editor-in-chief Hedley Donovan approved a yearbook-like spread of photos of the 242 soldiers who died in Vietnam between May 28 and June 3. That feature did what the editor hoped - it burned into the American consciousness the young faces of the men who fought in South East Asia

In 1968, Peanuts fans across America adopted a widespread ‘Snoopy for President’ campaign created by Schulz to coincide with the Presidential Elections. In a 14 day series of the strip Snoopy joined demonstrating birds and carried his own sign for ‘Paw Power’ in reference to the Flower Power and Black Power ideologies and protests of the time

Later in 1970 (in parallel to increasing anti-Vietnam fervor) Schulz had Snoopy giving a 4th of July speech at his alma mater, Daisy Hill Puppy Farm. However as he’s about to begin Snoopy is hit with a flying dog bowl by protesters and a full scale riot breaks out, during which tear gas is used to control the crowd. In the confusion Snoopy is blinded by tear gas and lost in the crowd, we later find out the protest concerned ‘War Dogs’ being sent to Vietnam and not coming home.

It’s still under wraps but we’ve been curating some of the content for the forthcoming Somerset House Peanuts exhibition in October. @tsptr will be an Official Exhibition Partner which is very cool, even cooler though are some of the documents and artefacts we’ve been ‘facilitating’ that’ll be on show, James McDaniels Snoopy flight helmet for example. McDaniels flew Dolphin and Shark Hueys with the 174th AHC in Vietnam between 67 and 71, Snoopy was emblazoned on his helmet, his slick and his scarf. His personal reflections on why Snoopy resonated with the men incountry will form part of the Vietnam War / Protest section we’re curating. The exhibition will delve deep into Peanuts influence on politics, culture and counter culture during the 1960s and 70s, if that’s your thing then put it in the diary now, you won’t be disappointed!
