About Suzuki Roshi
Here are a few photos I had on hand. Soon I'll get all the photos from the book and lots more from Japan and America up here. I'll put in folks from Crooked Cucumber so you can see what they look like and even some of me.--DC, December 1998.

9-16-14 - Having won the International Warren G. Harding Award for Most Boring Website Presentation for cuke.com every year for over a decade, we've decided to start including a thumbnail photo with each day's post (Click on it to enlarge). Info presented with photos works better on websites. Research has shown that info with a photo is remembered better - even if the photo is unrelated. Haven't done this because 1 - It takes time, 2 - it makes the file bigger and shower to load 3 - Didn't care - just want to keep uploading stuff without any standards. But the vote of the steering committee is to try to be more appealing. Dog photos would probably work best, but we have all these low res photos of Shunryu Suzuki so we'll go through them. This photo with notes is here higher res as SR0001 at shunryusuzuki.com. - DC - Posting this note on the cuke photos page but not the following photo thumbnail posts.
6-22-13 - Shunryu Suzuki photo archive now has had a great deal of info entered under the photos thanks to Peter Ford who also created this excellent photo display. Lots of info still to ad and surely some corrections to make, but this is a big step. We've got this collection digitized due to the efforts some years ago, maybe ten, of Shinshu Roberts, who took the photos to Seattle or somewhere up there where a friend had a quality scanner. I'd added info to a small number of photos with the intention of getting back to that task before the end of time. In the current scanning of a backlog of materials, came upon a chart of the photos with explanations. Shinshu might have done this but I bet it was Bill Redican. Peter ran the PDF of that list through a OCR (optical character recognition) program and entered the data into the Shunryu Suzuki photo archive on Shunryu Suzuki dot com. It took some scattered villagers. Many more photos should be scanned in the SFZC catacombs and in scattered shoeboxes.. - dc
famous to us photo of Shunryu Suzuki taken by Rowena (Leary) Pattee Kryder
Suzuki with other Bay Area Buddhist priests and others early sixties at Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco plus comments by Andrew Main. - posted 12-12-14
photo is of Suzuki in Japan at his temple, Rinsoin - looks like he's dressed as a pilgrim or takuhatsu (monk's begging). Used here cause it was on the CTR site. Guess it's with the photo archive at shunryusuzuki.com - dc

John Nelson, the USF Buddhism etc prof whose Bali blog was featured yesterday wants to know who that is to the left of Shunryu Suzuki in this photo and also I'd like to know who that is behind him. I keep thinking his name is Larry. The SFZC has used this photo numerous times through the years. It has a number in the Shunryu Suzuki photo archive but can't look for that now due to its rank on the priority list.
Please send any answer to this query to dchad at cuke dot com. Thanks, dc
