No diary entry today. More memories from Aunt Marjorie...

Aunt Marjorie wrote, "When Albert was teaching, he was friendly with some of his students. He wrote to Mother about a married couple of students who were worried about their child who hadn't started to talk. Mother wrote back and asked if they talked to their baby. He wrote back later saying that when he suggested to them that they should chat with the baby, then the child quickly started talking."

(Albert was a college professor and taught theology.)


  1. Good for Ruth! A NYTimes science story dealt with young mothers who didn't realize they should talk to their children, telling social workers things like..."well he never talks to me, either."


  2. Albert was also a match maker. If he saw a couple who he felt were a good match, he would make sure they got together. One couple I know he got together, he also married them.
