Gaston, Teddy Getty (Author)
Theodora Getty Gaston was born Theodora Lynch in Chicago, Illinois on September 13, 1913. She met J. Paul Getty while she was singing at a New York nightclub. When Gaston decided to take opera singing lessons, Getty agreed to pay for it if she paid him 10% of her future singing earnings. When they married in Rome in 1939, Getty had her sign a prenuptial agreement, which almost unheard of then.

Gaston studied opera in England and Italy, staying on even when Getty returned to the United States and there was possibility of war in Europe. Gaston extended her visa by signing on as a correspondent for the New York Herald Tribune. She was eventually accused by Italy's National Fascist Party of being a spy and imprisoned. She was freed only when her employer vouched that she was a journalist. She returned to the United States in 1942.
