>Holy March First (Lucien)


“Holy Peter, holy Allen, holy Solomon, holy Lucien”

86 years ago today, Lucien Carr was born in New York City.

He died on January 28, 2005 and his obituary in the New York Times can be read here. Another obit (from Eric Homberger in The Guardian) can be read here. David Amram remembers him and his friends at UPI remember him.

Columbia archives his papers, and a couple of typed letters in that archive from Allen to Lucien, can be viewed here and here.
