Erickson: Daisy Chapman has consented to talk a little bit about her experiences in Riverside. Daisy, do you remember what it was like when you first came to Riverside?
Daisy Chapman: What year would that have been, Homer?
Pause. (Dr. Chapman had not heard the question).
Daisy Chapman: Tell him.
Erickson: What year did Daisy come to Riverside?
Chapman: Oh, 1928.
Erickson: 1928. That was the year you were married.
Daisy Chapman: At the Inn. The Mission Inn.
Chapman: She and her aunt came out on the train and stayed with her aunt and uncle and daughter who lived in Los Angeles.
Daisy Chapman: Dorothy Herwig.
Chapman: She stayed there overnight, a couple of nights. The day had been set for March 10. They brought her out. So we had just a small group for our wedding. There were a couple of very close friends of her family.
Daisy Chapman: From Louisville.
Chapman: No one from my family was here at the time.
Erickson: So it was a small wedding. Were you married in the chapel?
Chapman: It was in the chapel.
Daisy Chapman: In the small chapel. Yes. And where did we have our feast?
Erickson: Where was the dinner, Homer?
Chapman: As I recall, we were married at 10:00 o'clock in the morning. We finished the service, we got in my old Model T Fordů
Daisy Chapman: chuckle
Chapman: Then Daisy and I drove to Palm Springs.
(collective sighs of approval)
Erickson: Oh, that is nice.
Daisy Chapman: Boy, Palm Springs looked at us!
Chapman: I made a reservation at then-leading hotel, The Miramar Hotel. We drove up between all the Packards and Pierce Arrows and Cadillacs in this old run-down Ford. But we were oblivious.
Daisy Chapman: We didn't know.
Chapman: to everything else. We registered and stayed there over the weekend. I didn't have any vacation coming because I had only been on my job six months. So, we enjoyed our stay there.
Erickson: You made some really wonderful friends, didn't you?
Daisy Chapman: Oh, yes. And then I played bridge. You know how that is.
Chapman: She belonged to two or three bridge clubs.
Erickson: Oh, so you played often.
Daisy Chapman: Weekly. We also were good in the church, Presbyterian Church. And he was busy with his things. Kiwanis and all of that.
Erickson: Had the Campus Club started up by then?
Daisy Chapman: Yes. It was.
Erickson: So you were a member of that.
Daisy Chapman: Yes. I joined everything.
Erickson: Did you join Affiliates, too?
Daisy Chapman: No, the Affiliates were just getting started.
