The phrase "War is not healthy for children and other living things" was a quote first coined by artist Lorraine Schneider in opposition to the Vietnam War.  This particular pin was created by Stewart Edward "Stew" Albert of the Youth International Party.  Called the "Yippies" for short, the Youth International Party was part of the radical anti-war movement of the late 1960s.
