Intro: What Happened During the Hip Golden Years ?

This website has been created to serve as a public record repository for the Hip Santa Cruz History Project (HipSCHP).   HipSCHP documents the unique cultural phenomenon that took place in Santa Cruz, California, circa 1964-1970.  It also functions as a community engagement tool, in order to draw in more interviews, media and artifacts, and to promote future events.
