Rich Clarkson/Capital-Journal alumni photos: Antiwar demonstrators protest outside the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. Shirtless protester Frank C. Plada later died while serving in the U.S. Army in Vietnam.

Right, Poster Dresses Ltd. made six photographic dresses in 1967, but the Bob Dylan version was discontinued after the musician threatened to sue.

I'm betting the next episode of Mad Men will have the 1968 Democratic Convention as a subplot. Caption under this pic, "Inside the convention hall, delegates battled over the Vietnam War and the power of the party establishment. Outside, Chicago police prepared for a parallel battle with antiwar protesters who flooded the city."
