Leonard Alfred Schneider?
The audience loved him. Writers adored him.
Jazz Musicians were crazy about him.
But the police and some audiences hated him.
He was tried in court for his wonderful performances
- that often hit the religious leaders and the bigots -
and he was jailed at times.
August 3, 1966
