Left Boston yesterday for Detroit. Rented a car and drove to Toledo. Why Toledo? On Friday, October 18, I am having dinner with Jon and Judith Hendricks. Jon was the founder of Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross, a jazz vocal group active in the 1960s. They won best jazz vocal group for three years running during their heyday. I interviewed Jon in 1973 for my PhD dissertation, “Jazz, Rock and Roll, and the Revolution in Psychotherapy, 1950 – 1975.” Last year, I self published an updated version of my dissertation. I have been giving it to people involved in the project. I contacted Jon and said I’d like to see him and give him a copy a CD of the interview from 40 years ago. If you don’t know him, look him up on line. His accomplishments are amazing. I am honored and thrilled to be able to spend time with him again.
I arrived Thursday and had some time to see the local sights. Here are a few of my favorite shots from around my hotel:
On the Maumee River
A crew practices
A sculpture near the Craig Memorial Bridge that is dedicated to four workers killed during the building of the bridge in 2004

View from my window (think Edward Hopper)
