The Original Guest List for Truman Capote's 1966 Black and White Ball

Given all the hoopla over Ryan Murphy's new show, I thought readers might find the original guest list an interesting read. Shockingly, it was published in The New York Times at the time. You may need to drag the file to your desktop to see it in-full. Not sure how the UI will handle the file.



(Follow-up: It seems all you have to do is click on the image, and the enlarged version will appear.)

The "gays" on the list are fascinating. The party was in 1966, and Stonewall didn't happen until 1969. Not many, if any, were out of the closet in 1966. How convenient (and devious) to make it a masked party.

Candace Bergen shares a fashion tidbit from the party. She ended up wearing Halston's white mink bunny mask that was intended for Marisa Berenson, who decided to wear something else.
