(Happy?) Dutch Family - May 5, 1954

Soon to be leaving Paris, but one more Dutch card to send first. MV asked in a recent comment for a reminder about Calvin's stay in Paris. He received a Fulbright Scholarship to study at the University of Paris.  By the timing, this would have been after his graduation from Capital University in Columbus.  In 1957 he received a PhD from Duke in Literature, writing his thesis on English poet, John Milton (1608-1674).  Milton spent several years abroad and time in Paris 1638-39.

Refer to Calvin Smith Family and New Vienna Church of Christ for more information about Calvin and his family.
Dutch Family Postcard sent to Al Smith - May 5, 1954
[Wednesday] May 5th, [1954] Paris
Al, this is a picture of a Dutch family on one of the islands.  Spent 4 days there and the bulb fields very beautiful – like an open air greenhouse.  Spending a week in Paris, and then to London.  Glad we are not [on] a conducted tour and can stop and go as we please.  Hope things are fine with you.  – Harold Uible
