Founded in 1785, The Times (known outside the U.K. as The London Times) looks back at its coverage of seismic events in modern history, including Marilyn’s tragic death aged 36.
“The tragic circumstances of Miss Monroe’s life, from her early days as a waif sent from one set of foster-parents to another, to her emergence as the ‘sex symbol’ of America, are well known. What is less well known is that as a person she was warm-hearted, friendly and simple. Most people who met and spoke to her outside the glare of publicity (as your Correspondent did) found her a delightful person.” – August 6, 1962
