The drab classroom in UCLA's Schoenberg Hall was in a loud, joyful state of pandemonium. Just after the halftime break in the graduate seminar "Performance Practices of the Romantic Era," students were surprised to be teamed into groups of twos and threes to pore over various printed editions of a Schubert song. They were to search for clues as to which edition might be the closest to what the composer had intended before the piece was altered by assorted copyists and publishers.

ROBERT WINTER doesn't hesitate when asked if he feels the presence of famed tile maker Ernest Batchelder and his wife in this Pasadena home. "Oh my, yes," says Winter, chuckling. "The fireplace reminds me the Batchelders are here. Alice's piano still echoes through the house, even though it's on a phonograph record. So far they've been awful nice to me." As they should.

So you think you know L.A. Have you been to the Banana Museum? How about the Tower of Pallets, or that kitchen in Santa Monica that is entirely covered in tiny glass beads? And if you've never stopped by Hollywood Cemetery to admire Carl Bigsby's tombstone--an exact marble replica of an Atlas missile--then you just haven't lived.

A man who stabbed three people, one of them fatally, at a party in Simi Valley two years ago was sentenced this week to 16 years in state prison. Robert Winters, 20, of Ventura pleaded guilty to manslaughter and assault charges in July after admitting that he stabbed the victims with a pocketknife on Oct. 13, 2001. Winters' attorney had argued at a preliminary hearing last year that his client acted in self-defense after a group of drunk party-goers jumped him.

Sometimes, in romance movies of years gone by, the heroine would dewily describe a certain transformative awakening in her life by saying that the hero had "made a woman of me." Now, in an entirely, entirely different sense, I can say unblushingly that professor Robert Winter made a Southern Californian of me.

We need your L.A. book picks - not just great books but books that will clue a newcomer in to this place, physically and socially, its past, present and future.  As part of our ever-growing Southern California Close-Ups project, we're pulling together a list of volumes that speak volumes about Los Angeles - maybe 50 books, maybe more. We've already opened fiction debate on a previous  post (see below). Now, here are the beginnings of our nonfiction list, in no particular order.

WHAT a pleasure to read about Robert Winter ["Set in Stone and Tile," April 27]. In 1962, I took his American culture course at UCLA's history department. It was a life-changing intellectual experience for an 18-year-old working-class kid who was first in her family to go to college. Over the years, I've bought several editions of his Southern California architecture guidebook, but I still have the original mimeographed sheets he handed out in that class. Thank you again, Professor Winter, for being such an inspiration.

I enjoyed Randy Lewis' "Conducting Beethoven by Mouse" (Nov. 12), including his highly complimentary references to Voyager's acclaimed CD-ROM titles by Robert Winter, who is now president of Calliope Media. There is clearly a place for very low-cost--and, of course, equally low-featured--products to introduce music to desktop audiences. Calliope titles, starting with "Robert Winter's Crazy for Ragtime" to be published in January at 49.95, will have all the entertainment features of the budget titles Lewis referred to in his story, but also the other features he missed.
