The history of the HopKins Black Box is a history of many people dedicated to experimentation in and through performance. First and foremost is Mary Frances HopKins who secured the space for us in 1992 and for whom it was officially named in a gala event in 2002. Second are the faculty and students who developed and cared for the tradition of live performance at LSU prior to 1992. While we havent the documents or memory to acknowledge their contributions specifically, we hope that the archives pay tribute to them in the spirit of remembering. Third are the directors, performers, and shows since 1992 that have slipped our memory especially in the early years when making or saving documents was superceded by purchasing a fire door for safety or risers for seating. We apologize for the gaps and urge any readers who can help us fill them, however partially, to contact us. Lastly, as we did in the first Black Box program, we extend again our

. . . heartfelt thanks to the individuals, departments, and businesses who donated their time, energy, advice and, in many cases, their money to help us realize this new performance lab. Those of us who teach, direct, and perform in this space are grateful for a room of our own that makes room for the public. Much thanks to: Marvin Allain, Ginger Conrad, Renee Edwards, Jack HopKins, our own Mary Frances HopKins, Lisa Landry, Max W. Lydy, Nathan Stucky, anonymous donors, Craig Kordes and the College of Arts & Sciences, the Department of Speech Communication, Lonnie LeBoeuf and LSU Property Control and Surplus, LSU Physical Plant, Michael Hawkins and Mid South Floor Coverings, State Lumber and Supply Co., and the many undergraduate and graduate student volunteers.
