Finding the protesters today, nearly 40 years after they made headlines, proved a challenge. Some, including Philip Berrigan, have died. George Mische, one of the original Nine and now living in Minnesota, was reluctant at first, but relented after Tropea helped him organize an appearance at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Some of the women, their names changed through marriage, were impossible to track down. And some former activists simply said no, perhaps disillusioned that their work back in the late '60s and early '70s didn't bear more enduring fruit. In all, four of the Nine and some 80 peace-movement veterans and other figures in total were interviewed for "Hit & Stay."
