1967: Alice B. Toklas, the companion to writer Gertrude Stein for nearly 40 years, dies at the age of 89 in Paris, France. Toklas and Stein met in Paris in 1907 and hosted parties that attracted expatriate American writers, such as Ernest Hemingway, Paul Bowles, Thornton Wilder and Sherwood Anderson, and avant-garde painters, including Picasso, Matisse and Braque. Stein's bestselling memoir, published in 1933, was titled "The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas." The couple remained together until Stein's death in 1946.
