My uncle Vern gave this to me in 1989, when we visited them in Palos Verdes Estates, CA. Vern had painted the Old Mill in Sudbury (where we had our wedding) when he was a student at MIT. Vern went to McGill and then MIT and then worked for The Aerospace Corporation.

The Old Mill is still operational and you can buy milled flour and baked goods in the shop across the street. This site is part of Longfellows' Wayside Inn, about which William Wadsworth Longfellow wrote a poem, 'Stopping By the Wayside Inn.' The Martha-Mary Chapel, where we married, is one of several identical chapels Henry Ford (former owner of the land) set up to honor his mother and grandmother. A pretty, and common site for weddings.
Vernal Josephson gave this to me in 1989, when we visited them at their house at 1617 Via Lazo, Palos Verdes Estates, CA. Vern had painted the Old Mill in Sudbury (where we had our wedding) when he was a student at MIT. Notice the engineering/architectural precision of the painting, rather than a more artistic interpretation. Vern went to McGill and then MIT and then worked for The Aerospace Corporation, which is a famous company. He then got a very good pension from the Aerospace Corp. Being a rocket scientist in the 50s was a very good job. He was from Idaho, and grew up a poor farm boy. He didn't raise his kids as LDS, but he was raised LDS. Glenna sold a play in college. She went to college for a year and then married and had Sandra. Glenna later went back to finish college and got a teaching degree.
