Home          Introduction          Site Map & Miscellany      
This page comprises the best compilation we have, thus far, been able to achieve of the folks who were involved first in the KQED Experimental Project, and those who later formed, comprised and aided NCET in its multiple missions.  Apologies are offered in advance for any omissions. They are by no means intentional, but have escaped almost 40 years of collective personal memory.  Those who's names appear in yellow were direct contributors to the artistic output of NCET, and have pages of their own.
