Apologies for missing the addresses of the Wilsons, Thomas Walther, Sheikh Saud Al Thani, Howard Stein, Saundra B. Lane, and Baroness Marion & Baron Philippe Lambert but I'm not infallible. For reference, I used a combination of the Federal Elections Commission's web site along with the White Pages, Map Quest, and Google to track all of these down.

Now from my perspective (and the reason I did the research, and then posted them here) is what's the point in Art News publishing just their names? It ain't like these people need their egos boosted. But if you are a photographer, or have some kick-ass art, it would be worthwhile to make them aware of it, right? I make no claims to them being the correct addresses, but from my perspective, it is most definitely worth the price of the 20 stamps if you're having an exhibition. Let me know how it goes, ok?
