Saturday, October 23, 1926

No diary entry today. We continue with Aunt Marjorie's memories.

"Albert was trying to decide whether to marry his girlfriend, Marjorie, or become a priest. He asked Marjorie, and she apparently turned him down, so he became a priest. Later she wrote to Albert that if he would ask her again she would say "yes". They must have stayed in touch because I remember hearing later that she eventually married someone else."

Albert obviously never asked her again.

  1. Our family knew very little about the Jesuits, not being Catholic. One aunt thought he would never see the family again, which wasn't true. He ended up in San Francisco teaching philosophy at the University of San Francisco. He learned several languages and from all reports, was respected by his collegues and friends. He was gentle by nature and a great conversationalist. He is missed by all.
