BARBARA HOWAR. Autograph Note signed: "Barbara Howar", 1p, 5¼x7¾. No place, 1978 January 3. In full: "For George - who makes being help up at the gate the best of the day. With affection". Ink caption (unknown hand) at bottom edge. Washington socialite, journalist and TV personality Barbara Howar (b. 1934) dating everyone from Bobby Darin to Henry Kissinger. The hostess was at her social peak during the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, until she had a falling out with LBJ. Her memoir Laughing All the Way was candid about her personal life, but titillated Washington by leaving paramours unnamed ("a United States Senator," "a White House aide"). She also wrote novels and political commentaries. An oft-cited quote from Laughing is: "There is nothing better for the spirit or the body than a love affair. It elevates the thoughts and flattens the stomach." Slightly soiled at top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
