Biographical Note

Listenings was the university's literary magazine, produced by IIT students. Much of the art work included in the magazine was produced by IIT's Institute of Design students and was considered somewhat radical at the time, causing the magazine to become controversial with the administration. The last issue which appeared with a photograph of a toilet on the cover proved to be the demise of the magazine.
