A Journal of Work as a Student Assistant to Scenic Designer Kert F. Lundell
Since this journal is to be put on file and perhaps serve as reference material, I am including a prefatory note explaining how my S.I.P. came about, and how I envisioned my work in New York before leaving. I wrote to a number of designers in New York in the early fall, asking to be a student observer and offering my assistance. I asked for no pay, which is no doubt the only reason I heard from any of them. The replies (from Rouben Ter-Aruntunian, Ed Wittstein, Peter Wexler, Jo Mielziner, and Kert Lundell) are included in the back of this journal under the heading of "Correspondence".
