The Sun Ra Archive Waitawhile

Hello Saturnites,

To my big surprise I recently had to realize that the world greatest and official Sun Ra Archive Waitawhile has been closed by end of December 2009. Yes, indeed, last year! -- It could be that this information has been announced on the past Sun Ra Convention, this year, where I could not attend.

The Waitawhile Sun Ra Archive has been open for 50 years, servicing for half a century the Sun Ra community. The Archive has closed, mail will continue to be accepted, but unfortunately no longer responded to. Also, memorabilia will be accepted and will be added to the collection.

What are the reasons? - Well, the archivist has decided to dedicate himself to Sun Ra's jewish (spiritually) brother and his estate, namely Salomo Friedlaender/Mynona. This author has written works such as, 'The heliocentric I', etc., he also is the "Father" of Fritz Perls. An edition of 30 volumes of F/M works will gradually be published over the years, currently 12 of them are already available.

So, let us stay connected!

Dr. K.
