New York Social Diary report that Betsey Pickering Kaiser, a friend and subject (she was one of the most compelling of the models in my book Model) has died after a long decline. I saw her last at a dinner given for her and me at Lost Tree in Florida at the home of Alexander and Robbin Gaudieri. Discovered at Sarah Lawrence in 1953, Betsey modeled even though her parents disapproved. “It was not considered the most reputable profession,” she told me. Those were the days!
