Mike Fellows Archive

April 4th, 2017 by David Kronemyer · No Comments

These materials are from some of the people who participated in the Independent Study Program at Point Loma High School during 1967-1970, an educational experiment in unstructured learning. Most of the action occurs during 1970-1976 as the principals migrated from San Diego to Berkeley and other locales, acquired significant others, and otherwise engaged with life. Given their limitations as archival objects – they are nothing more than what they purport to be – they most likely are not representative. However, they illustrate some of the projects and concerns of those involved, and are intrinsically interesting in their own right. Further observations and documentation are welcome in order to clarify the impressions or elaborate on the ideas expressed in the letters, or to present a different perspective.

Dramatis Personae

Michael Fellows: Author of most of the letters. A brilliant if inconsistent philosopher and theorist. His primary interests during the period of the letters were educational policy and issues arising out of his enlistment in the U.S. Air Force. Friend of David and Robert. Mary’s boyfriend for a while. Present whereabouts unknown. David: “I think about him from time to time, and miss him.”

Richard Fellows: Michael’s brother.

David Kronemyer: Recipient of most of the letters. His side of the correspondence is lost. Phenomenologist and musician. Friend of Michael and Robert. Kathryn’s boyfriend for a while. Now a researcher and clinician at the UCLA School of Medicine. “I don’t know why Michael entrusted me with this material, much of which is private notes and correspondence with others. Even though unknown to me, he did so for a reason. I put it in a box and, mainly through inadvertence, I was able to hang on to it over the years. My soul tells me that now is the right time to let it come forth.”

Robert Nuese: Metaphysician, trumpeter. Friend of Michael and David. Ginger’s boyfriend for a while. Present whereabouts unknown. David: “He was so spirited, I miss him, too.”

Others: too numerous to mention.
