The name Robert Chun (Chun, I think) comes to mind when you mention blacks in the program. He was senior staff in the early '70's, and a great guy.

I remember:  Ann, who did my intake; Janice (was she the tall black gal always off to the girl's side?); Darlene, Libby, Suzie, Penny (ugh) John and Clay; Karl, thin guy always off to the guy's side (who married Vicki Burke), along with another guy who wore glasses, can't remember his name (maybe Rick - quiet guy); some guy about John's age from Ft. Lauderdale, can't recall his name, dark haired and tall (if memory serves he was nice enough); and a little tiny gal maybe Robin (?).   I only remember Arthur coming down for a short time; then there's the gal rumoured to have married John, can't remember her name either.  I can still see all their faces even if I can't bring up their names after 29 or 30 years or however long it has been and forever on the front row.

I remember Suzy when she was at the Cleveland seed.
She and Scott did my intake.  I liked them both which probably helped my parents get me in there.

I liked them best because,at least then, they each had a sense of humor.  Scott's before stories were often great fun and what a relief it was to laugh.  The one I remember most clearly was a story about his getting into a drunken brawl
and going home thinking "steak, so I don't get a black eye".  He put a frozen steak on his face and passed out.  During the night the steak defrosted and the blood on his face dried with the blood on the steak.  When he woke up he thought he was blind.  I laughed my head off.

Suddenly one day he was gone, to work at the florida seed, folks said, although no one told us directly.  About three months later he was back but he was totally different, no sense of humor, no laughter just deadly serious staff member standing at the side of group.  I always wondered what happened to him.  Clearly, someone thought he was having to much fun

You have a good memory, thanks for reminding me , there faces are coming back to me. remember Darlene Robertson and her little brother was on the program as well. Some of the staff members were real dorks out on the streets, and then they got to push us around, i always remember that big junkie ego thing with some of them of which many came from homes of privilage, and really knew nothing of the real streets. WE HAD TO GIVE UP OUR EGO SO THEY COULD INFLATE THEIRS !  I think more young kids wanted to try herion so they had a great story .

Hey richard, do you remember Art or John or anyone else saying they were in a drug rehab in New York?

This is important, so please think hard...

I only remember Art saying he was an alcoholic, and if you are talking about John Underwood, I  think his family lived in HOLLYWOOD FLA. area, I  think he went to DRIFTWOOD MIDDLE SCHOOL with my older brother. He was a couple of years  ahead of him. The funny thing is I don't remember John from the small house, maybe only Libby..
Most of the seed stars came in on st andrews.
the house that they used for the haunted house, is that st andrews? I don't recall most of the faces from the small house making it over to SR84

So maybe it was Nick that used to say that. Do you remember him speaking of a rehab in New York?

Richard, have you seen the pic of Art, Libby, John Perloff, Shelly and at least one other seedling? This will give you an idea what they look like now, keeping in mind this is over two years ago.

I've lived in St. Pete my whole life.  I remember a family that lived down the street from me sent the oldest brother to the Seed.  I'm guessing this would have been somewhere around 1975, give or take a year or two.  The name is Joe Portwood.  I have no idea how long he was there or whether or not it was St. Pete or Lauderdale.  I don't even really remember him to well.  His youngest sister was my age.  All I remember is that he was supposed to be this scary guy who had to go away for a while.  When he got out we found out where he was.  Does the name ring any bells with anyone?

It blows me away that there's a connection back that far.  I wonder if my parents knew of the Straight/Seed lineage.

In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

Are you sure the guy you are thinking of was named Clay? It sure sounds a lot like Cliff. John U. married a gal named Pam, who was also staff.

Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path. You must climb towards the Truth. It cannot be \'stepped down\'

Wow - after reading the posts, I think I must have blocked out a lot of my time at the Seed!!  I only remember Libby (her name - not her) and Art Barker.  When he came to speak to us, which was somewhat rare, it was like Jesus came in for a visit!  Once we had to sit on the asphalt outside in the summer waiting for him to get there for what seemed like hours!!  My best friend & I got put in at the same time - all our friends had been sent already and we were kinda lonely (ahh - the stupidity of youth)and I really only remember her, a girl named Suzy from Ft. Pierce area that lived with my family for a while and a few of my friends from before we went in.   :scared:
