Sorry about waiting so long to scan these pix. Midori sent them as 3" X 5" prints, and the one which shows Midori is horribly underexposed, and I don't have the tools/skills to improve it much, but I'd be happy to pass the prints on to someone who can do a better job. Haanster? Ed? Anyone?

BooDawg. Thanks for taking the time to scan and post those photos.

Here is my quick attempt to improve the Midori scan, on my Photoshop.

It looks like someone with more Photoshop knowledge than me-----and some more time, could greatly improve this old photo.

Looks like someone is offering Midori a toke?

Sheridan's brother is a very accomplished climber in his own right and was knocking them back while Sheridan was drawing away.

Hello,
I knew and worked with Sheridan Anderson in San Francisco 1967-1968 when he married Leslie Fairbairn. Leslie was a close friend of my girlfriend, Janelle Andrews. We were witnesses at their wedding, iirc.

Janelle and I moved to Mountain View in 1968, but we remained good friends with the Anderson's and visited occasionally. Then I came back east in 1969 and unfortunately soon lost all contact.

I would be interested in discovering any info about old friends Janelle and Leslie, who would be about 70 now. I'm 76. Any leads or help appreciated.

I'm also willing to share my memories of Sheridan, if anyone is interested. I particularly remember his good humor, that he had a special affection for Yosemite, and was always painting or sketching something artistic. I was sorry to hear that he passed away in 1984.
Thanks,

Blow me over with a feather. This is the first time I've heard any mention of Sheridan being married.

That is something, isn't it, Jan. I never even gave that a thought, myself.

On the 20th anniversary of the death of Sheridan Anderson, Evelyn Spence looked back on one of the most colorful characters flyfishing has ever known.

While he spent summers in Yosemite, he wintered in Reno, in Bishop, in San Francisco. “He was very much of the San Francisco crowd, “ says Frank Amato, the eventual publisher of the Manifesto. “He really captured the mindset of that time and place.”

When then-fledgling photographer Ed Cooper was looking for a place to rent in 1967, as the Summer of Love was peaking into pot and bellbottoms and beads, he moved in with Sheridan. It was a random union, but the pair got along and soon moved into a bigger apartment near Golden Gate Park in the Richmond District. Dubbed the 6th Avenue Delicatessen and Commune, there was enough room for darkrooms, easels, and girlfriends.

“When I lived with him, I had a girlfriend—now my wife—and he married a woman named Leslie Fairbairn, but he’d already been married before—to another Lesley (this one with an l-e-y ending) who had two kids,” Cooper says. “I think his attitude toward women was kind of archaic.”

Neither matrimony lasted more than a year or two, perhaps because Sheridan claimed that “marriage was an admission of failure.”

Yes, I've read in a couple of places that Sheridan was married twice, to Leslie Fairbairn and to another woman named Lesley. I knew the first, not the second. Reportedly divorced from both, and according to mutual friend & photographer Ed Cooper (edcooper.com), Sheridan remarked to him that "Marriage is an admission of failure". Sheridan always had a witty comment, like he called my girlfriend Janelle a "climber", which she was in a social sense, not a mountaineering sense. I didn't understand until later but Sheridan did. Sheridan was a few years older than me and was a good friend, a semi-father figure, helped a lot during the difficult time when Janelle and I were breaking up. I took up playing the kyoto, and Janelle took up playing with the policeman who lived in the apartment upstairs... :) Still that was long ago and I would like to establish contact again.

Oops, sorry, not that it matters but it was a "koto" (not kyoto), similar to this one:

It makes a wonderful twangy sound if you pluck a string then press on the opposite side of the bridge. It's very lightweight if you want to lug one up to the summit and serenade the stars...or whatever.
