Cleo Odzer (1950-2001) was a beautiful adventurer who grew up in Manhattan as the only child of a wealthy family. In the late sixties she was part of the rock scene and was engaged to Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. She left everything behind to hang out with the hippies in Europe and eventually travelled to Goa, India in the mid 70s, where she lived with a tight-knit community of "freaks". In 1980 she returned to the U.S., went through the Daytop drug rehabilitation program and earned a Ph.D. in Anthropology from The New School of Social Research. She wrote three popular books (Goa Freaks, Patpong Sisters, Virtual Spaces) and spent ten years working for Daytop in New York City. She was a pioneer in the early days of the internet, which she documented in Virtual Spaces. Twenty years after leaving, she moved back to Goa and passed away there in March, 2001. This group is dedicated to sharing information and memories about Cleo Odzer. Anyone who knew her or is interested in her life is invited to post their thoughts, photos, or questions.
