Michael Horowitz

Michael Horowitz, archivist for Dr. Timothy Leary offered Gen refuge after his Exile From england...

He is the husband of author Cynthia Palmer, and the father of Winona Ryder and Uri Horowitz.

A former close associate of Timothy Leary, he is responsible with his wife for the creation of the world's largest library of drug literature, the Fitz Hugh Ludlow Memorial Library.
Horowitz and actor Leonardo DiCaprio are planning a biopic about Leary to be written by Craig Lucas.

The following excerpt appears as a full article written by Gen in Love Sex Fear Death: The Inside Story of The Process Church of the Final Judgment by Timothy Wyllie, edited by Adam Parfrey, published by Feral House.

In one of those classic magical moments I had thrown a heap of post in my bag as we left England. Whilst trying to make sense of becoming an exile and refugee overnight I idly opened one envelope. It was a letter from Michael Horowitz, archivist for Dr. Timothy Leary, and his partner Cindy Palmer. In it he had written, "If you ever need a refuge, call me at this number." I did, and he immediately offered me and my family sanctuary at his home in Petaluma, where we lived in Winona Ryder's old bedroom for several months.
