LSD Archive Has Been on a Long, Strange Trip

Roger Liggenstorfer, a friend of Dr. Hofmann’s, says the late chemist wanted researchers flocking to his archive. The current situation is “not really the wish of Albert,” he says.

​The archive’s tortuous path, from Switzerland to Los Angeles, to the suburbs of San Francisco, and then back to Europe for an anticlimactic ending, reflects the tensions between Dr. Hofmann’s orderly Swiss life and the messy cultural baggage tied to his most famous discovery.
