A Movement is Born, by Justin Raimondo, An Enemy of the State, 2000
From Chapter 4, "Beyond Left and Right"
"By the spring of 1969, ... the Radical Libertarian Alliance (RLA) was constituted on May 17 ... the leadership of the RLA, consisting of budding young Rothbardian scholars such as Walter Block, Roy A. Childs Jr., Wilson A. Clark Jr., and John Hagel III, was far more interested in attending seminars on Austrian economics than in learning how to make bombs. What the RLA had to offer the youth of America was intellectually, but not literally, explosive."
The Movement Grows [PDF], by Murray N. Rothbard, The Libertarian, 1 Jun 1969
Recounts the first three meetings of the Libertarian Forum, the student libertarian organizations at Fordham, Wesleyan, SUNY Buffalo and Stanford, and the formation of the RLA
"... there is now a nationwide libertarian organization in existence, the Radical Libertarian Alliance. It was born on May 17, on the occasion of the third meeting of the Libertarian Forum in New York City. ... In keeping with its libertarian nature, it is envisioned that RLA will be organized in the form of strictly autonomous chapters. ... It is estimated that already, when RLA has hardly been formed, there are at least 26 college chapters alone."
