    Oh my goodness! I just saw this and am psyched that Duncan got a nice grave stone. I have fond memories of Duncan breaking the jewelry store window in the winter so he would get arrested and be put in a ‘warm’ jail cell during the winter. What a sweet drunk he was. Thanks for posting this!!! Duncan will always be a ‘Cool cat!’ in my book.

    I remember the interesting character Christopher Michael. That was all I knew of his name as I was probably 9 or 10 years old, but you just knew he was an artist of some sort and, well, interesting. I have a copy of a book of poems that he wrote that my mother gave to me, blue cover, A Deluge of Stars…

    I met Edward Connery Latham when my mother, Alice Schoepflin/Frantz, was working in Scott Jackson’s gallery. Mr. Latham was so tall, lanky and dapper wearing a tweedish jacket and pant and a clever tie of maybe the bow-type. He was the editor of a collection of his friend Robert Frost’s poems – I will always cherish that memory of this regal old gentleman and his connection to Robert Frost. Scott Jackson painted his portrait, so lovely (as all of Scott’s work is!)
