Thoughts on art, creativity, and the writing life.

Allegra Fuller Snyder (1927-2021)

with one comment

I was saddened to learn that Allegra Fuller Snyder passed away last Sunday at the age of 93. Allegra was a remarkable person in her own right—she was a professor emerita at UCLA and a pioneer in the field of dance ethnology—but I got to know her through the life and work of her father, Buckminster Fuller, whose biography I’ve been writing for the last three years. She navigated the challenges of that unusual legacy with intelligence and compassion, and I owe a great deal to her kindness and support. My thoughts are with her loved ones and friends.

  1. She said an idea could be raw. I think of you often. It’s been a blistering summer here in Maine. Bear misses you.
