Letter from Sally Dixon to Ernie Gehr (06/11/1974)

June 11, 1974
Ernie Gehr
c/o Film-Makers' Cooperative 175 Lexington Avenue New York, New York 10016
Dear Ernie:
We would very much like to have you come to Pittsburgh for an evening screening and discussion of your films on Wednesday, January 15,11975
if that is agreeable with you.
We pay an honorarium of $500, out of which must come your travel and hotel expenses. I offer you a simple room at my house if you would like, which would help conserve expenses.
In addition we have a workshop that you may use while you are here (description enclosed). Or if you wish to film anything in the city for which you would need special permission, let me know and I can clear it before you arrive. (For instance, Brakhage needed the police, a hospital, and the morgue, etc. )•
If you would like to stay a few days and teach a workshop of some sort just send me a description and we will set it up on our end.
Consider these possibilities, Ernie, and let me hear from you.
I look forward to hearing from you and to meeting you eventually.
Sincerely yours,
Sally F. Dixon Curator, Film Section
