Interview #19, Part II
Is that the last of what I told you -- about Mrs. J.?
My lady, I wonder if you would start out today by dealing
with some of your social activities in the past year, just to
make them a matter of record. Some of them had significance in
other ways. Some of them didn't.
Well, I was in California in February and March of 1979.
In February and March?
of this year, and it was an extremely pleasant time.
Where were you based?
I rented a house in Beverly Hills, which I've been
renting for the last seven years. I had my sister, Mrs. Hoffman,
and Mrs. Lederer (Ann Landers) come to visit me, but it was
a time of a great deal of pleasant social activity, and really
charming parties were given for my by Mrs. William Goetz, Mr. and
Mrs. Tom wilcox -- he's the President of Crocker Bank in San Francisco
and Los Angeles, and by Mr. and Mrs. Simon Ramo.
What's his connection? Who is he?
Well, he's a great industrialist, who was head of the U.S.
Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Task Force -- who was one of
Nixon's major science advisors, and he and his wife are friends
