The Newlyweds

The Newlyweds

My parents, Charles and Harriet (Tyler) Miller on their wedding day, June 11, 1946. Cambridge, MA. Spiffy suit, Dad! Update: Found and posted the original Kodachrome slide - apparently Kodachrome prints were not as stable.

The two writing instruments in Charles' coat pocket are, to paraphrase Jimmy Cannon, "a snide boast of literacy."

Hey, everybody! Check out this Kodachrome!

Now that I have your attention and have gotten my eyeballs back in my head, all I can say is wow - just wow.

In Cambridge because...

Mom was a grad student at Harvard (yes, Harvard!) and Dad was serving in CPS. They met through the Folk Dance Society and the International Student Center. They didn't keep up the dance after kids came along, but international students were frequent guests in our home and we in theirs -- which may help explain why I've never met a cuisine I didn't like!

P.S. Cousin Mike and I can be seen (in the days when we were indescribably cute) here:

Charles and Harriet

The words svelte and handsome come to mind. I may have seen a picture of Charles with hair prior to this but can't recall. How was it that they were in Cambridge? School maybe.
