The 1950s



We moved to Oregon in 1950, so Dad could teach at Oregon State College, in Corvallis.   To live in Oregon was, essentially, to be absorbed by nature.  The schools were stress-free;   and Mom and Dad found friends and supporters at the College.   Above left:  our house at 445 N. 31st St.   Right:  Mom on Mary’s Peak, in the Cascade Range, near Corvallis.
