1940 - 1950


Dietrich von Bothmer praised what he saw after a stay in the House. "It was wonderful to see the spirit of the House confirmed. If only more people would take the time to look at the place! I haven't had a meal yet where I haven't had a chance to learn, learn, and learn."

Ira Latour, professor emeritus of art history at CSU, Chico, has been named an Ansel Adams Research Fellow at the University of Arizona's Center for Creative Photography for the project "Ansel Adams, the Newhalls, and the Crusade for Creative Photography."

Henry Weston and Elizabeth Evans Weston have both retired from teaching. "We have celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary and moved to Lake Tahoe. We enjoy sharing its beauty with old I-House friends passing through."

Iona Rockwell Main recalls, "International House caused me to view Berkeley as a microcosm of the world and I found this world to be a friendly place."

Patricia Pilling-Halbeisen writes that she was "felled by a visit to Keiko the whale during a trip to Iceland." Despite being quite literally knocked off her feet on the boat trip, she enjoyed "superb scenery and food plus very friendly people, cellular phone and computer-wise."

Carroll Webber and Edith Hill Webber recall, "We met at the dinner table in the fall, 1946, went to folkdances in the Great Hall, communicated by snakeskin hung from our across-the-central-court windows, took Russian 1 together in the summer, and were married in 1947." They make their home in Greenville, NC.
