"The Latin Touch"
While Simon Templar was in Rome back in 1962, he got caught up in the kidnapping of a United States governor's daughter. And in rescuing her, the adventure, as seen by the Trueniverse audience, altered the state of American politics from what was happening back in the real world.
The inmate got himself on Death Row by killing a man in Burlington. There may be other Burlingtons in America, but to have it stated without attribution to the state would mean - to me, at any rate - Burlington, Vermont. And that's why I believe that Hudson Inverest was the governor of Vermont in 1962 - as far as Toobworld is concerned.
In the real world, Ray F. Keyser was the governor of Vermont, the youngest to ever hold that position up to that time. (He was 34.) And like almost all of the Vermont governors before him, Keyser was a Republican. But after his one year term, Keyser was replaced by a Democrat.
So the only thing that might have remained constant between Toobworld and the Trueniverse would have been that Inverest was probably a Republican as well. (As played by Alexander Knox, the former college professor - Dartmouth*? - certainly had that aura.)
Mt. Inverest has a nice ring to it, don't you think?
* Yes, I know Dartmouth is in New Hampshire, but I think I heard it stated that he had been a Dartmouth professor. The word was garbled and so it could have been a reference to the subject he taught.
