    Does anyone know how to contact Diane Schenker? She was one of my professors at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle in 1993 and her work had a profound effect on me. I would love to let her know.

    I too am trying to reconnect with Diane Schenker; she was one of my professors too, though I now guess she’s only a day or two older than I am….. Diane – send me a note! Please! – Marilyn
