back Leola, Tourist next
Perhaps a bit local to qualify as tourism, the Los Angeles Temple was a very big deal in our Californian lives. Until it came along in 1956 (announced, interestingly enough, in 1937), our nearest Temple was the one in Mesa, Arizona. Leola was glad to have a picture of herself by its reflecting pool.

As English teachers (among other subjects) by trade, the folks were up for a visit to San Diego’s Globe Theatre, and Aunt Margaret Pack Seely (our Margo) kindly took us there when we visited around 1956.

In 1957, we embarked on our first-ever trip east of the Rockies, looping through the South, up the Atlantic coast via New York and Boston into Quebec and then home. Richard was already interested in MIT, and we thought we would do well to see it for ourselves.
