David Bunnell was one of the founding figures of the computer trade publication industry, involved in founding PC Magazine, Macworld and others. Before that, though, he was involved in New Left politics at the University of Nebraska, where as a student in 1968 he served as the president of the Students for a Democratic Society chapter. His FBI file tracks that group's activities during his tenure there.
