The Passing Of A Classic: Julie Wilson

Julie Wilson, the timeless chanteuse, passed away this week, and I wanted to honor her here.  The New York Social Diary did an amazing article on her life, and I highly recommend it to you.

When I think of Julie Wilson, I often think of "Miss Betty."  They were about the same age and when Miss Betty was on her grand European tour in her 20's, she saw Kiss Me Kate with Julie Wilson, Alfred Drake and Patricia Morison while she was in London. (Miss Morison is still living and just turned 100 last month!)
