blast from the past: the troth of her daughter

It’s Thursday, and that means Blast from the Past day on Google+.

Apparently, you can access parts of the Newspaper Archive via your Facebook account. I dug this up, from the Berkeley Daily Gazette, Thursday, February 01, 1945:

Mrs. G.C. Harrison Reveals the Troth Of Her Daughter

    Mrs. Georgia Cralle Harrison of the Garden Court Apartments, Berkeley, has announced the betrothal of her daughter, Nancy-King Harrison, to Pfc. Joe Rubio, U.S. Army.
    Nancy-King, now a senior student at Berkeley High School, and an accomplished pianist, will graduate in June. She is the daughter of the late George Gibson Harrison. The bride-to-be has one younger sister, Janet Cralle Harrison, who is known for her ability as a singer.
    Pfc. Rubio, now stationed at Camp Cook, is the son of Mrs. Francis Rubio of Antioch. He attended the schools in Antioch and the University of California, where he studied journalism and has contributed sports articles to local newspapers. Previous to entering the Army he studied under A.S.T. programs at the University of Colorado and the University of Missouri. He is the brother of Mary Rubio and Mrs. Barbara Solis of Antioch, and of Michael Rubio, U.S. Army Air Corps, who has been serving in England for two years. He has a third and married sister, living in Hawaii.
    The young people do not plan to wed until after the war.
