It is said that San Francisco columnist, Herb Caen coined the term "beatnick" to describe Bob Kaufman.
IN TIMES OF NATIONAL PERIL, ABOMUNISTS, AS REALITY
AMERICANS, STAND READY TO DRINK THEMSELVES
TO DEATH FOR THEIR COUNTRY.
"ABOMUNIST MANIFESTO" c.1958.
(Beat poetry probably has much more to do with jazz than folkmusic but it has a whole bunch to do with USian folkways. I knew Bob somewhat and I liked him.)
