DEAD FRENCH IN L.A. WEEK
July 7-14, 2013
As occurs with many civilizations, people leave their ancient homelands and wander the planet. There is a French Diaspora. The French can be found in each continent, even French scientists can be found in Antarctica.
Trying to define the parameters of "Dead French in L.A." proves difficult, so "Dead French in L.A. Week" will include all of the possible combinations as listed below. In essence, "Dead French in L.A." will refer to any dead person of French descent who made a mark in Los Angeles.
By the way, my mother was French-Canadian. She was born in Quebec, raised in Rhode Island, moved to Los Angeles, died in Gardena, and is buried at Holy Cross.
My research into the Dead French in Los Angeles found too many stories to be included in this one week presentation. So, this First Annual DFLA Week will showcase a sampling of all the different kinds of dead French people who have wandered into this desert by the sea.
