American novelist and political activist Mitchell Goodman was noted for his novels, The End of It , which was an account of World War II, and The Movement toward a New America , which depicted various events of the 1960s.

As an anti-war activist Goodman was arrested in June 1968, along with Dr. Benjamin Spock, the Reverend William Sloane Coffin, Jr., and Michael Ferber. The group was later convicted of conspiring to encourage draft resistance against the Vietnam War. The conviction was overturned on appeal.

The American bibliographer, bookseller, and collector Robert A. Wilson was the third proprietor of the Phoenix Book Shop in New York City. Wilson was also the author of A Bibliography of Denise Levertov , published in 1972.
