Born as Gloria Frances Gurganus in Wilmington October 3, 1927.
Had a career as a model, had been married with Frank Staveridis.
In the late fifties she became Georgia Winters, the fictional
editor of Jacques Chambrun’s magazine “16” Did most of the
interviews and the photo’s.
“I loved Gloria, she was wild. I was from the Bronx,
and she was a whole different breed of woman.
I got a kick out of the way she was so different.
I was 19 and she was 32, and we both discovered
Lenny Bruce together. She was interviewing me for
the magazine, and she told me that I couldn’t tell
people I was taking drugs, or about any serious
problems I had. She told me to smile, put down
the cigarette, and don’t threaten anyone.
From the Danny Fields interview with Dion DiMucci for
Who’s Your Fave Rave, the book he wrote together with
Randi Reisfeld about the magazine “16”
