This chapter looks at Aaron Copeland's later years. He spent these years touring the world, conducting and lecturing while at the same time keeping in contact with family and friends. He spent his latter years in the process of conducting and preparing his memoirs, but his correspondences was riddled with little more than recommendations, and the business of the MacDowell Colony featured predominantly. Throughout the 1960s, Copeland produced even more music at a steady pace. Some of his works of the period included Something Wild (1961), Connotations (1962), and Inscape (1967). Finally, the chapter also takes note of the correspondences that Copeland sent as he hit his eighties when he was be affected by senile dementia. Vivian Perlis, a good and devoted friend, stayed by his side, working tirelessly to assemble his autobiography. Also there to comfort him until his death in December 2, 1990 were Phillip Ramey and Verna Fine.
