According to a press release dated 21 January 1970, Humanities 160, Contemporary Issues, organized a Survival Faire at San Jose State College, February 16-20. The purpose of the faire was to raise awareness to the college community and broader public on the problems of environmental survival. The Faire sponsored a week of activities that included events, exhibits, speakers, panels, workshops, films, exhibits, plays and a funeral procession and a nine hour wake to celebrate the burial of a 1970 car, among other events.
