abstract
Electronic reproduction of Australian and British editions of OZ, with background documents and ephemera. The collection includes full print runs of both publications, and material relating to the London obscenity trial. OZ was first published as a satirical magazine in Sydney, Australia in 1963. Throughout its existence (1963 to 1969), the magazine was controversial, covering highly contentious issues relating to censorship, homosexuality, racism, police brutality, and the Vietnam War. The editors were charged with distributing an obscene publication and sent to prison. In 1967, London OZ was founded. Again, the publication was highly controversial. In 1970, the editors were accused of obscenity, found guilty and sent to prison. The convictions were overturned on appeal. The amount of interest in the trial caused the magazine's circulation to rise considerably. The last issue, No. 48, was published in 1973. The editorial staff in Sydney and London included Richard Neville, Richard Walsh, Peter Grose, Martin Sharp, Felix Dennis and Jim Anderson.
