Although it was issued without attribution, it is thought to be the work of Tuli Kupferberg (1923-2010), counterculture poet, pacifist, anarchist, publisher, and founder of The Fugs. The pass is pictured at the conclusion of Kupferberg's essay in Joseph Berke's work Counter Culture: The Creation of an Alternate Society (1969).
