Toklas at the Hotel Pernollet in Belley, France. The Beinecke Library also offers online access to correspondence, manuscripts, and photographs in the Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas Papers.
Seeing Gertrude Stein: Five Stories, an upcoming exhibition at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco, focuses on these themes: Picturing Gertrude; Domestic Stein; the Art of Friendship; Celebrity Stein; and Legacies. The exhibition catalog is available from the University of California Press.
