Thanks to participants in this forum about Anya Philips - I'm fascinated by her - and saddened that her contributions to and influences on the music, art, fashion and film of the era are not well documented.
In piecing together the facts of her life, I am starting at the end. I am about dig into the archives of the NYPL in search of an obituary. Might any of you know of one? Where it may have been published? East Village Eye and Soho Weekly News are my first targets. Any other publications you could suggest? I believe she died July 23, 1981, though I have read other dates that I know are wrong - can anyone confirm this date?
I understand some of you are reluctant to post stories about Anya, presumably because of heroin and associated tragedies of the day. If so, omit the dirt - I would just like to know more about her.
And of course, any pix you could post would be very much appreciated.
