Andy Warhol at UO, 1968

Andy Warhol was invited to the University of Oregon campus in October 1967 to give a talk and show some of his films. Warhol sent an actor named Alan Midgett instead, and no one realized he was an imposter. The real Andy Warhol came to campus on February 21, 1968, accompanied by Paul Morrissey and Viva!. “I never thought of getting away with anything,” Warhol explained. “I actually thought Alan would do a better job and people would enjoy him much better.” Archival footage from KEZI-TV, Chambers Communications Corp., Coll 427, FV34.
