Donald Greenhaus

The name Donald Greenhaus will be recognizable to those familiar with the amazing photos he shot of the proto-VU: Lou, John, Sterling and Angus in front of and then on the roof of the 56 Ludlow Street building. Out of curiosity today I sought out some information on Greenhaus, and learned that he was a childhood friend of Lou's, became a professional photographer, and died in 2007. The Toronto Globe & Mail has a riveting personal essay by him on their site. I also found an interesting feature on him in a 1996 issue of Popular Photography magazine.

The latter I've put in PDF form at, and the former is at ... e25296758/.
