RAW letter (pdf) to Kurt who writes, “This letter dated June 3, 1987 is, I believe, the most instructive of the more than 80 snail mails I received between 1981 and 1995.  As I mentioned, most are prosaic accounts of Bob’s daily activity which consisted mostly of  writing.  It seemed like after hours and hours of creating masterpieces Bob enjoyed staying at the keyboard to write letters.  Indeed, writing kept his mind off the deleterious circumstances of relying on the undependable income of a free-lancer who is not yet appreciated by the establishment cognoscenti.”

Was an explanation ever given for Timothy Leary’s disappearance as described in the Richard Miller letters (Also described in Cosmic Trigger and elsewhere, I think).

Walter Bowart (author of Operation Mind Control) wrote this article which touches upon it, but I have no idea whether to attribute any validity to it:

I remember a while back also reading an account by Joanna Leary of one of her visits to Leary while in Folsom. Unfortunately, I cannot remember where I found it and the closest I have is her quote in Goffman’s Leary Biography (I have not read the book):
“Tim came into the cage and his head was shaved and he had blood all over his skull. ”

I also couldn’t find any reference to this particular incident in his Flashbacks Autobiography.

Anyone know if an explanation was ever given?

Thanks in advance!
