'My 12 hours as a madman'

Sidney Katz, a veteran journalist who worked at both the Toronto Star and Maclean's, passed away this week at the age of 92. Lauded as a ground-breaking writer who pursued some of society's most controversial issues, his most celebrated piece might be "My 12 hours as a madman" from the Oct. 1, 1953 issue of Maclean's. Reproduced here in full, it was hailed this week as "the first detailed, first-person account in a general magazine of the effects of LSD."
