Lorraine Belcher lived with FZ at Studio Z, and she participated in the "party tape" for which FZ was busted. She is name-checked - as "Pete", her nickname - on the cover of "Freak Out!" (1966) under the heading "These People Have Contributed Materially In Many Ways To Make Our Music What It Is. Please Do Not Hold It Against Them".

In the article "Vice Squad Raids Local Film Studio" (Ontario Daily Report, 1964, Ted Harp), they called her the "buxom red-haired companion" of FZ...

Later in life she became the girlfriend and eventually in 2010 the legally married partner of underground comix artist S. Clay Wilson [1], who is best known as the creator of the comic strip "The Checkered Demon". [2]
