Berkman entered Columbia University’s medical school expecting to have a successful and brilliant career as a physician. Early on he was drawn, however, to his classmates with more radical politics. The upheaval of the late 1960s caught up with him as he began to read Marx and became more and more willing to do small illegal actions. He also met and romanced his classmate Barbara Zeller as they both moved closer to people in political groups such as the Students for Democratic Society’s Weathermen.
