Merce Cunningham has donated his entire archives, accumulated over seventy years, to the New York Public Library.<P>The collection includes over 6,000 hours of film and videtape - someone has estimated it would take you two years to view it all, if you were working at it 7 hours a day. i haven't checked the arithmetic - all i can say is: i'm glad it's not me!

That's great to hear as a record of such an important figure. I wonder what he is going to do with the rights to his work. Perhaps Ron Protas could take it on?

Stuart, I'm a bit dense. I couldn't tell if the Ron Protas comment was serious or ???????????? tongue-in-cheek (chic?) shall I say....(smile)
