While Kurt was teaching at UCLA, a young woman named Annette became obsessed with him. In today's terms, we would say she began to "stalk" Kurt, sending him dozens and dozens of letters, leaving messages, even moving close to where he lived in Venice, Ca. Kurt knew it was a situation fraught with complications, and even danger; at one point he became afraid for his life. The art historian in him, however, realized that he should keep and document the missives Annette had sent, and sometime later (circa 1970) he reflected upon the meaning and content of her various communications. A portion of his 123-page document is included here. "I have not forgotten Annette," Kurt writes. "Nor have I burned her notes, never thinking that the distances of history and memory had to be obliterated. What follows is a description and transcription of the flotsam of Annette's mind as it concerned me."
