My parents were married in a small wedding at the Drake Hotel during the depression.
They first met at the University of Missouri. After graduation, they continued their studies at the University of Chicago and were married at the Drake Hotel with only a few friends present as it was during the depression. I do not know if they were married by a rabbi. My father was from St. Louis and my mother was from Helena, Arkansas. After the birth of my sister in 1942, my parents moved to several different locations (Waco and Arlington, Virginia) and finally to St Louis, where I attended grammar and secondary school. Although I have never resided in Chicago, I grew up hearing stories of this magnificent city.
