1967: Alice Amidst The Year That Was

March 7th, 2017 § 1 comment § permalink

Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of Alice B. Toklas in Paris, one event in a memorable 1967.

In a post several years ago, I used the title “That Was The Year That Was,” a variation of the mid- 1960s television show called “That Was The Week That Was.” The program, a predecessor of “Saturday Night Live,” and John Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight,” took a humorous, satiric look at the news of the previous week.

To commemorate Alice, I’m looking at  “…The Year That Was,” 1967. (She lived without Gertrude for twenty-one years.)
