Fred Good

Fred Good’s early career was as a community organizer in New York City’s Lower East Side where he was instrumental in founding several community organizations, including the Real Great Society, the University of the Streets, and the Lower East Side Community Music Workshop, now known as Tu Casa Studios. He introduced R. Buckminster Fuller to the Lower East Side in 1968, an association which the renowned inventor maintained until his death in 1983.

After moving to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, with his wife and daughter in 1981, Fred became a full time artist. In 1987, he founded New View Publications to support the work of his wife and her colleagues who had become interested in Perceptual Control Theory (PCT). In addition to publishing and distributing books related to PCT, New View sponsors seminars and workshops designed to teach the basic principles of the theory to professionals working in the applied social sciences, primarily in the fields of psychology and education.
