Halbert Harold and Julia Holloway



Hal's National Guard friend, Halbert Harold Holloway, Julia Holloway, Lazaro Garza, Myra Carico



Auntie Joyce Bolton, Julia Holloway, Myra Carico, 10 August 1957. I made all our dresses here, indeed all those I wear in these photographs after 1953. The silk of the wedding dress I later used to line pants I made for Richard, Colin and Jonathan out of yellow corduroy when I took them to Europe to visit their relatives there. We received no child support. My graduation gown is my aunt's, that I remade into my doctor's robes, and which we had also loaned to Hal for his graduation. I gave my academic regalia to our grandchildren so that all these generations could use them, placing them in the chests I made for them when I entered the convent at 55.
