David Chadiwck

David Chadwick arrived at the San Francisco Zen Center in 1966. He wrote a biography of Suzuki Roshi called Crooked Cucumber: The Life and Zen Teaching of Shunryu Suzuki, published in 1999. Cuke.com is a website started for that book which grew into a sprawling oral/written history of Suzuki and those whose paths crossed his. Cuke Archives is a name often used for the overall work. Shunryusuzuki.com is Cuke Archive’s site for the most complete collection of his lecture transcripts, audio, videos, and photos. There are other books and more to say but it’s all at cuke.com. Suzuki Roshi ordained David Chadwick as a priest before his death in 1971.
