GEORGE FRANKLIN GETTY II
His signed letter announcing a new set of permissions for the Los Angeles Club
Typed letter signed: "George F. Getty II" in black ink. 1 page, 7¼x10½. Los Angeles, California, August 7, 1964. On his letterhead at The Los Angeles Club to "Dear Fellow Los Angeles Club Member" in full: "The Board of Directors of the Los Angles Club has determined that, effective immediately, wives of members and their guests, may have full use of the Amin Dining Room at noontime. The ladies have always been permitted us the private rooms for luncheon parties but now they will be able to enjoy the Main Dining Room as well. This decision was based to a great extent upon a poll of club members, which was overwhelmingly in favor of the plan. To facilitate the use of the club by your wife, we are enclosing a 1964 membership card which bears the same number as yours, except that an A is added to the number. Wives also will have the privilege of signing parking tickets in the garage, the same privilege which you enjoy. For those men who prefer to dine strictly in male, company the Men's Grill and Bar has been reserved at noontime. Hence-forth, this area will be exclusively for the use of men during the luncheon period. Incidentally, since the blue booklet containing the bylaws and roster was printed, 40 additional members have been added. A small sheet, the same size as a page in the blue booklet, is enclosed containing these names. This in gummed so that you incorporate it as an additional page at the end of the roster in the booklet. Cordially ,". George Franklin Getty II (1924-1973) was the first son of J. Paul Getty and grandson of George F. Getty I, wealthy businessman and founder of Getty Oil. Elder Getty left the business to his wife upon his death in 1930, who in turn gave the company over to their son J. Paul. Young George was inducted into the family business early in life, achieving his own fortunes at a young age. He served as President of Tidewater, the Los Angeles Club and Director of the Getty Museum. Constantly pressured by his over-dominating father, Getty suffered from extreme insecurity and depression. By overdose of pills, he committed suicide in 1973 at the age of 49. Normal mailing folds. Fine condition.
