Camilla Hall

Camilla Hall (1945-1974) was an early member of the Symbionese Liberation Army. She was the only surviving child of four; two of her siblings died of a kidney disorder and a third of polio.

Camilla moved to Los Angeles in 1968 in search of a place where her art and her lesbianism would be more welcome. She lived there for three years, surviving on a small income from her art sales, before moving to Berkeley, where she fell in love with her upstairs neighbor, Patricia Soltysik, to whom she gave the name "Mizmoon."

Died in a shootout (May 17, 1974, 9 000 rounds fired) with police in which five other SLA member were killed. Reportly, she was shot in the head while charging the police with a pistol.
