Hi Gene,

Here's some quick additions to your list:

Saul Levine (see P.Adam Sitney's article in the current Art Forum)

Willie Verela

Howard Guttenplan

Carolee Schneemann (I just completed preservation on Kitch's Last
Meal for Anthology Film Archives)

Jon Rubin (At Home and Away in the Late Seventies)

Warren Sonbert

David Wojnarowicz (mostly unfinished work, but "Fire in My Belly"
from his travels in Mexico is especially interesting)
