Carol Ann Carter, H.W., M., 1936-2020

Carol Carter, H.W., M., long-time student and teacher in The Prosperos passed away on May 3, 2020 in her Tulsa, Oklahoma, retirement home. Carol was born in Kansas City, Kansas on February 11, 1936 and was living in New York City when she connected with Thane and The Prosperos.

She lived for many years in the Los Angeles area, being part of the infamous “Co-op 69” household at one point. She was also a starring member of the equally infamous Clapsaddle Chorale and played opposite the late Mary Ritley, H.W., M. in a very funny skit about two elderly ladies happening across a 25-cent-per-view porn video and Carol, in her old lady voice, loudly calling out: “What is HE doing to HIM?!?”

Carol later studied psychodrama and became its chief proponent in the school, going around the country presenting weekend Psychodrama/RHS events. I attended two of them in San Francisco, one of which, held at the home of Frank Syster, was a life-changing experience for me.

Psychodrama/RHS also became the center around many of the annual Prosperos Assemblies held while Thane (founder and late dean of The Prosperos) was still alive and for many years subsequent to his passing.

One thought on “Carol Ann Carter, H.W., M., 1936-2020”

  1. Oh my, now I’m really feeling mortal! Carol was such a light and a DEElight. As for “COOP” ’69, we could all hardly WAIT to get home from work, and Larry (the love of her life’s) huge table feast. Every night was great, impromptu entertainment!!

    I had always hoped a better screen writer than I would capture it for TV (irreverent as we could be).

    God bless your sweet Soul, Carol (I’ve forgotten your Clappsaddle name!). “Ahui Ho”
