Hope all is progressing will w/you. We are in a whirlpool of moving activity. Seems like there's no beginning or end! We certainly enjoyed the C. C. workshop. A virtual paradise of facilities you have!!! Hope we can do something there again perhaps. As ever, Andrea & Tom

Mark—I hope all is going well in Colorado. Been real busy here. Talked to Jack Higbee about SPE & he said you were helping co-ordinate events. (I'm amazed that you have the time) Anyway he said to let you know that we or I am interested in taking part at the conference. I can afford the travel expenses this year. We'd also like to co-ordinate things at BC [Space] so there are no conflicts. Let me know if a lecture or something could be worked into the program. In the meantime enjoy the summer. My best to Ben [Benschneider] and Scott [McLeod]—Jerry

[address redacted] —look familiar? Hi Mark! Just thought I'd drop you a card to say hi and see how all is going with you. Are you keeping busy? I know, stupid question... So are you headed back out Colorado way this summer? I hear rumors that it'll be b&w. True? Right now I'm in Frank Gohlke's class, trying to get all my English majorish stuff done in time to graduate & make summer plans. A tall order! I've been keeping in touch with Ben [Benschneider] and Tom [Mawn], trying to get some concrete plans together. Tim [Peek] is still in Nicaragua, and I guess nothing will be definite for me until he says yay or nay. I'm having breakfast at J's tomorrow with Ben, so maybe it'll all be clearer. Another factor has come into the picture now too... I went to cover the amateur boxing championships at the AFA [Air Force Academy] recently and had the fortune to end up squatting next to Co Rentmeester from Life (and various other publications.) He invited me out to visit him at the Time/Life Building in N.Y.C. I've since mailed him a letter with a boxing photo enclosed. He called today, and it looks like I'll see him in a month! He also mentioned that he needs a production assistant.... We'll see what happens,.. but I am excited! Hope all is well w/you. Sunshine—Jody

Dear Mark: Belated thanks for yr. letter & exhibition announcement. Good luck with it! I regretted to learn of Ben's [Benschneider] death, & appreciate your own sense of loss. My condolences to you. I was very sorry to have the Colorado gig cancelled—was greatly looking forward to it. Next yr, I hope. Speaking of "gigs"—& jazz talk, did you know that Inglewood is the hometown of the late, lamented ZOOT SIMS? You asked what I'm up to w/ Larry Burrows.... same project, lecture from 1 1/2 yrs ago—a study of the American war culture, which will cover, in part, photo journalism, too, esp. LIFE mag. in 3 wars. Have you seen the new U.S. stamp memorializing Korea based on a D. D. [David Duncan] Duncan photo no credit to him, obv. Hope all goes well, Best, Alfred Appel

Dec 4, 1908 Mark—Had b-fast w/ Ben [Benschneider] this morn. He's looking healthy and happy. We already have two people accepted to the summer inst! (Remember John Catto?) Anyways, I'm doing better than usual ('tis the season to be jolly, after all). FINALLY got rid of the pups (motherhood agh!!) and have been traveling a little—Chicago and Santa Fe. Will be home for x-mas, then playing decadent in Aspen. Just gotta have a fur coat and boots for the apres-ski scene! Enjoy the holiday. Take care, Heidi (Biff's arriving in LA soon.) P.S. I haven't mellowed out—alas....

Ben and Mark, Thanks once again for having us out. As usual it was a complete pleasure. Sorry we were unable to make it to the Sand Dunes, as it turned out we couldn't have gone anyway—I had to do my final crit on Friday night and we didn't get to leave till Saturday morning. Next time we get out your way, we will plan on staying longer so we can have some time to do a few more things. Thanks again & enjoy the summer—Jerry & Barb
