Kent Reunion

This was passed along by Chris Butler.

Hi Everyone,

Some folks from Kent asked me to send an email around to see what kind of response there would be for a reunion at Kent this May 4th.

Dan Miller plans to show his documentary there this May. He'll have about 60 minutes of the feature-length video he plans to air on public broadcasting and at Sundance about Kent State SDS and the struggle there after SDS was kicked off campus --from about 1964 through the 70s.

So...it's a great opportunity to get together as always. At the 2000 reunion, we spent a day with a sound system in a Kent restaurant telling each other our stories and eating wonderful food. It was an exhilarating experience. I'd love to do something like that again.

I'm in Oregon-- in fact we're all so far away from each other that it's a bit hard to feel the pulse of the group...but...let's talk about this. Remember to "reply all" so everyone on the list gets to read everything everyone writes. Also....take a look at the email list. If you know the addresses of people who should be included there, please let me know and I'll send those addresses out to everyone as well. Of course, some folks don't have email (I have numbers for George Huffman, Vince and Carolyn Modugno, Terry Hynde, Ruth Gibson --if you have others, let me know. A volunteer will be needed to reach them).

Love to you all,
Candy (Erickson) Knox

Dan Miller's Kent State Film

Dan Miller, a former Kent State student, has been working on a documentary about the history of Kent State and the people who were there during the 1960's to the 1980's. He is going to debut it publicly in Kent on May 4th 2005. I haven't seen it yet, but several people who have seen it in various forms over the years say it is very good. Dan has been working with the University of Oregon in recent years and he heads up the Oregon Documentary Project for student filmmakers, good stuff.

The Coop

The home to Bill Zorn...the Z Man.
Back in the day Bill lived in the Coop, a converted chicken coop with a metal working shop on the ground floor, and Bill's living/performance space in the loft above.
Filled with bullwhips, firearms, electric erotic art, and extremely psychadelic lighting performances, it was accompanied by loud rock.
I'm sure you all have stories.
Mine's about Zorn bullwhipping a cigarette out of Gerry Casale's hand, in the parking lot outside the coop, behind Burgners.
Talk about art meets politics.
