       A few contributors transferred from Hunter without being graduated.  For them, the year cited specifies their class membership. Also the list does not distinguish between January and June graduates. To save space I have tried to avoid naming institutions and organizations other than HCHS.

       When I refer to recollections found in published sources, like the autobiographies of Diane di Prima, 1951, and Nancy K. Miller, 1959, the passages I cite were in print before this project began, rather than written as contributions for it.
