Jerry Rubin Dies at 56

LOS ANGELES () -- Jerry Rubin, a flamboyant Vietnam War protester in the United States during the 1960s and more recently a well-tailored businessman, has died at the age of 56.


Rubin had been hospitalized since Nov. 14, when he was hit by a car while crossing the street against a red light near his home in Los Angeles.


Rubin was among seven protestors charged for inciting violence during the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago which resulted in the notorious "Chicago Seven" trial. He turned to spiritualism in the 1970s, discovering yoga, bioenergetics and self-awareness programs that eventually led him to venture banking on Wall Street.
