“Activism Dormant, Not Dead, Says Author.” Article-interview by Anthony Colarossi. (Wilkes-Barre, Pa.) Times Leader, 28 May, Sec. A, p. 3. Interviewed after receiving an honorary doctor of humane letters degree at Wilkes University, Mailer said that if President Bill Clinton based his 1996 election campaign on bringing whites and blacks together, it might generate an activist movement. The administration, he added, “is just not passionate enough. And Clinton is not ready to die [politically] for a political idea.” See 95.20.
