Leon Varjian (1951-2015) was a graduate student at Indiana University from 1972-1975, known primarily for his comedic news publications such as Fun City and his organized antics on the IU campus. He ran for mayor of Bloomington in 1973 and IU Trustee in 1976, though his campaign platforms were humorous and satirical. After his time in Bloomington, Varjian attended University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he continued similar political theatre antics and produced a successful local access cable television show called Vern & Evelyn through 1984. This collection contains his personal papers, including documents and memorabilia from his mayoral campaign, flyers from his social events, notes and drafts, newspapers and clippings, and correspondence, and materials from Vern & Evelyn .
