biography of a key leader of the '68 protests who says that the purpose 
of the action was to help Eugene McCarthy's chances. Dellinger and 
Rennie Davis, another key leader of the Chicago action, told a Eugene 
McCarthy campaign coordinator that if was likely to receive the 
nomination they would call off the protest. Dellinger, Davis, and Tom 
Hayden were the most visible spokesmen for the protest, not Jerry Rubin 
who was something of a media hog.
