I'm not referring to such modern myths as: There's a giant alligator living in the sewers of Manhattan, Jimi Hendrix is alive and living on the same island as Jimmy Hoffa and Jim Croce, or Ted Koppel has no legs. I am referring to the ancient myths of Egypt, Greece and Rome--lore passed through the centuries by oracles, witches and pagans.

Stanley Kubrick not only made films of majesty and unsettling mystery, he also kept meticulous records of the odysseys behind them. Next summer, that collection will find a new home at the University of the Arts London. The archives of the director of such landmark films as "Dr. Strangelove," "2001: A Space Odyssey" and "Lolita" include not only scripts and research documents from his productions but also correspondence, costumes, props, models, photographs and film equipment.

Los Angeles has a Mexican American mayor, a Spanish-language name and the largest Latino population of any U.S. metropolis. But until now it hasn't been able to sustain a permanent major museum or cultural center dedicated to that teeming constituency. For decades, local Latino politicians and arts officials have watched with mounting frustration and embarrassment as Chicago, New York, Dallas, Long Beach and Omaha opened Latino- and Latin American-themed cultural institutions, while proposals for similar projects in Los Angeles languished in draft stages or, in the case of the Latino Museum of History, Art and Culture, virtually shut down after only a few years in operation.

In response to "A Tradition of Tradition-Be-Damned" by David Wharton, April 15: Once again the CalArts story is told without reference to its real roots: the Chouinard Art Institute and the L.A.

He never forgot and over the years watched the Chouinard Art Institute grow into the finest art school on the West Coast.
