Hi bluestreak! As always, thanks for your question. James Thurston died between 1990 and 1999. I came across several articles in the Washington Post that mention Thurston in connection with dance and choreography. There are no mentions past 1990. Then in 1999, there are two short pieces about a memorial for artists who suffered from AIDS, and a dancer James Thurston named is listed as one of the deceased. According to this article, Miya Hisaka Silva, who at one time ran the Contemporary Dance Theatre in DC, told the Washington Post 'AIDS wiped out a whole generation of dancers.' ... is honoring those local dancers who died--Jack Guidone, James Thurston, Jason Taylor and others--with a program called 'Mostly Men.'" "Here & Now." Washington Post. December 5, 1999, p. G03 http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-adv/archives/advanced.htm Another article reviews the "Mostly Men" program in greater depth. "Guiding Lights of D.C. Motion: 'Mostly Men' Recalls Artists Lost to AIDS," by Sarah Kaufman. The Washington Mpost, December 13, 1999, P. C05. Search strategy Although there are a few sites that mention Thurston, I found nothing substantial. Went to a couple of newspaper indexes and searched for Thurston there. I'm glad you were able to get the information you needed from my leads :) Thanks so much for giving me credit! As always, if you'd like clarification, please just ask and I'll do what I can for you. Regards, luciaphile-ga

This one was particularly tough. I had to wind my way through 2 more leads after I spoke with Miya, but it was enjoyable though, since I got to reminise with these folks about dance in NYC in the 70's. But it all ended well. So I want to thank you so very much for your continued loyalty and skills. This is your 14th bulls-eye. The next most hits are 4. You also have contributed to 17 more, while 3 others had 5 contributions and 4 had 4. That why I call you Luciaphile the Great. And you may not even be finished yet! Whew! I can now belive you when you once hinted that you don't take breaks. Thanks a million. I'm still working to convert some of your other leads into hits. bluestreak
