Jan. 1, 1959: Matt Weinstock, ‘Unsung Heroines’

Matt Weinstock, 1959

The other joy of doing the Daily Mirror was reintroducing readers to the columns of Matt Weinstock, taken from the Mirror (d. 1962). Weinstock is remembered today for the 1947 book “My L.A.” (I have enough copies, thank you), which inspired an apparently dreadful revue by Larry Gelbart with music by Sammy Fain..

In this column, Weinstock takes a whimsical look at the origins of “The Little Old Lady From Pasadena.”

Weinstock’s complete column is here, via Archive.org.
