1966 Bruce Conner's class: "Wasted Time"

Course description in the 1966-67 College Catalog

Having been told by SFAI Director Fred Martin that he could teach anything he wanted, Bruce Conner proposed a class titled  Wasted Time. Martin shoots down the idea, explaining that he doesn’t want to have to justify the existence of a class with that name on student transcripts, and they compromise by calling the course Undergraduate Seminar (although the course description remains as proposed: “Wasted Time: unproductive activity of no practical application.”)
