    • Timothy Leary The character of Professor David Stone is based on the real-life professor and personality Timothy Leary, famous and notorious for his advocacy of LSD use. He received a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. He lectured at Harvard University until he was dismissed in May 1963 for his experiments with hallucinogenic drugs (although a different official explanation was given for the firing). Leary continued his experiments at a private mansion and campaigned for the widespread acceptance of LSD. He coined the phrase "Tune in, turn on and drop out" to help promote the supposed benefits of LSD. He was later convicted of drug-related offenses although at the time this episode was filmed and broadcast, Leary had only just begun to experience legal problems from his possession and use of controlled drugs. In later decades, Leary became a pop celebrity and a lecturer on space colonization and altered states of consciousness. He continued to use illegal drugs until his death in 1996.
