Alice B. Toklas (April 30, 1877 – March 7, 1967) was the life partner of writer Gertrude Stein. Born in San Francisco, California to a middle-class Jewish family she met Stein in Paris on September 8, 1907 on the first day that she arrived. Together they hosted a salon that attracted expatriate American writers, such as Ernest Hemingway, Paul Bowles, Thornton Wilder, and avant-garde painters, including Picasso, and Matisse.
WBF, your wish is my command. Here are the baptism and endowment records for Alice. As you say, we will probably have to wait until the Proclamation on the Family is rescinded before we see Gertrude and Alice sealed to each other in heaven, as they were on earth. And lest there be any doubt that her work was not done by her children, beside the fact that she had none, it should be noted that the IGI batch that contains her records also contain Cotton Mather, Increase Mather, Zachary Taylor and the father of John Steinbeck.
