Deadbeats. Vol. 1, no. 1

San Francisco, CA: the newsletter, [1984]. First issue of the parody newsletter, a single sheet of 8.5x11 inch paper printed both sides, very good. OCLC lists one holding at SF Public Library.

Published by pranksters associated with St. Mary's Hospital in San Francisco, the newsletter mocks alleged profiteering by hospital administration. The hospital is referred to as S&M rather than St. Mary's. One fake memo announces a cost-saving move of the hospital to Korea.
