San Jose Maverick (later Maverick) was an underground newspaper published in San Jose, California monthly from Feb. 1969 to Fall 1970. A total of 16 issues were published, in a tabloid format. Connected with the Bay Area Revolutionary Union and its local faction headed by Stanford University English professor H. Bruce Franklin, the Maverick was labor-oriented, and printed some articles in Spanish. Bruce Franklin contributed a number of articles under the pseudonym "Will B. Outlaw",[1] including one entitled "The AK-47 vs. the M-16: Why the Capitalist Gun Is Inferior". In its second year of publication the paper shortened its title to Maverick starting with the Feb. 1970 issue (vol. 2, no. 2).[2]
