Re: Truth Beauty book


My B.F.A. class of '57 had only 13 students with one woman and whose daughter, many years later, I had as a student.

Being only 13 in the class, it was almost one-on-one with the faculty - Ralph Hattersley, Minor White & Beaumont Newhall.
Classes that small no longer exist...unfortunately ....

Hi Judy
AMTRAK is great but you would need at lest a overnight
Not like the good old day's when it was the new York Central rail
Than there was all the bus line you could get from all the small towns to the big city like Rochester.
RIT than was right in the center of the city no campus.
Than there farther Kodak huge than.
At the start of the year Kodak gave a lunch and a big tour of Kodak for the freshmen.
Students got large discounts on film and paper.
We all started with large format.
MY class was over 100 students one woman in it few women were in photography
That is changed now wish it was like that than.

Hi James ! NOW YOU TELL ME !!! (Tho that's good to know on general principles.)

For this trip, however, I probably prefer plane: up and back the same day -- 9:30 AM flight up and 7:30 PM back... tho due to personal error, I had to change the day from Tuesday to Wednesday, giving Jet Blue another $50 for the accomodation... (grrrr...)

I also, in the long ago, had a couple of lovely visits to Rochester (including Eastman House). The Visual Studies Workshop had a great workshop, for which we stayed in an RIT or U of Rochester dorm (for $30) and either that event or another had a wonderful, cruel, delicious course with Nathan Lyons. This time, as noted, I will seek the opportunity to give Eastman House a piece of my mind (little as I can spare it) -- What kind of bubble are they in that they know NOTHING except thruway ?

Maybe it's NYC-centric to demand mention of transport from here... So let them cite what reaches Rochester (train, plane, et al), & we fill in details. Did I mention that I was annoyed to find elaborate detailed instructions for car only? (The front page of today's NY Times, incidentally, reports on a German suburb with no cars allowed, only bicycles and feet... If residents want a car they can buy garage space on the outskirts for $40,000.)

I can, BTW, take the A train to and from Kennedy -- it transfers to or becomes "the train to the plane." (And I read in the NY Times Science Section today that we ancients can tolerate sleep deprivation better than our juniors... Do I know anything not explained in the Times? I'll let you know.)
