More information

Tom Hayden was born in Detroit, Michigan, to parents of Irish ancestry. He graduated from Dondero High School in Royal Oak, Michigan, class of 1956. He later attended the University of Michigan, where he was editor of the Michigan Daily and, disenchanted by the anti-radicalism of existing groups like the National Student Association (later revealed to be a CIA front), was one of the initiators of the influential leftist student activist group Students for a Democratic Society (SDS). During 1961, Hayden married Casey Cason, a Texas-born civil rights activist who worked for the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC). Hayden became a "freedom rider" in the South and then served as president of SDS from 1962 to 1963.
