Wednesday, December 11, 1968
A panel of educators, health specialists and doctors assembled to speak in the Carriage House about birth control. Among those presenting were Bill Baird, Dr. Albert Ellis of the Institute of Rational Living, and local obstetrician Dr. Norman Elsky.
Ellis, a psychiatrist, was author of Sex Without Guilt and had worked with Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey on research into human sexual behavior.
Baird, who lived in Valley Stream, was a birth control advocate who had been arrested a number of times (including in Hempstead in 1965) for distributing and displaying information about contraception and abortion.
