Japan project: Does anyone have a photo of Bill Hamilton?

Toggle
I'm writing a simple overview of Pragmatic Dharma for Japanese publishers contemplating (at my suggestion) the introduction of pragmatic teachers and translations of their books to Japan. Central to this is a brief synopsis of leading teachers in the pragmatic scene. I'd like to include information on the influence of Bill Hamilton and his book - a photo of the man would help. Plus, I'm curious to see what he looked like. Can anyone help me out?

Also, who would you include in the list? I've got Bill Hamilton, Kenneth Folk, Daniel, Shinzen Young, Culadasa, Shannon Stein, Michael Taft, ... as you can see, I'm just getting started.

This is not for publication, but for educating prospective publishers in Japan about the burgeoning pragmatic scene and the books and teachers that Japanese practitioners would benefit from contact with.

Many thanks!

Hey, I did find this photo of Bill Hamilton at IMS in 1983 sent to me from a guy named Rick.

Thank you Daniel! What a beautiful shot.
I just realized - I was there the following year. Too bad I missed him!

Aw, man, the hair and glasses from that period sure were goofy! (Said by someone who was 28 at the time that was taken).

The new Shinzen AMA video has a pic of Kenneth and Bill together building huts that Janusz and Kenneth managed to dig out.
