Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Pamela Courson
    TWENTIES
  • 1974
    Age 27
    On April 25, 1974, Courson died of a heroin overdose on the living room couch at the Los Angeles apartment she shared with two male friends.
    More Details Hide Details Her cremated remains were interred in the mausoleum at Fairhaven Memorial Park in Santa Ana, California. The plaque reads "Pamela Susan Morrison 1946–1974," despite the fact "Morrison" was never part of Courson's legal name. Several months after her death, her parents, Columbus and Penny Courson, inherited her fortune. Jim Morrison's parents later contested the Coursons' executorship of the estate, leading to additional legal battles. In 1979 both parties agreed to divide the earnings from Morrison's estate equally. Courson was portrayed by Meg Ryan in Oliver Stone's 1991 film The Doors.
  • 1971
    Age 24
    Courson stated that on July 3, 1971, she awoke to find Morrison dead in the bathtub of their apartment in Paris.
    More Details Hide Details The official coroner's report listed his cause of death as heart failure, although no autopsy was performed. Under Morrison's will, which stated that he was "an unmarried person", Courson was named his heir, and therefore in line to inherit his entire fortune. Lawsuits against the estate would tie up her quest for inheritance for the next two years. After Morrison's death, Courson continued to live in Los Angeles. Former Doors employee Danny Sugerman became friendly with her in Los Angeles during this time and later wrote in Wonderland Avenue about an experience of taking quaaludes and snorting heroin with Courson.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1965
    Age 18
    One biography states that Courson and Morrison met at a lesser-known nightclub called The London Fog on the Sunset Strip in 1965, while she was an art student at Los Angeles City College.
    More Details Hide Details In his 1998 memoir, Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors, keyboardist Ray Manzarek states that Courson and a friend saw the band during their stint at The London Fog. Courson's relationship with Morrison was tumultuous with loud arguments and repeated infidelities by both partners. For a time Courson operated Themis, a fashion boutique that Morrison bought for her.
