Page Four The OBSIDIAN September, 1944
We don’t know where the antelope roam but we have a pretty good idea about the deer and the elk. They roam all over the country immediately surrounding the Mountain Camp. They are both plentiful and unusually tame this year. They must have heard that nothing more lethal than a camera was allowed in camp. Catherine Dunlop took a picture of elk at what she estimated as twenty feet. We do hope she didn’t jiggle the camera. Another group of hikers counted twenty four elk in one herd. Deer were not so plentiful but several were seen at quite close quarters.
While most Obsidians were away enjoying Summer Camp, Alfred Tyson remained in town. Imagine our surprise on returning to find Alfred married. The bride, formerly Miss Caroline Hines, is a gradaute of the University of Kentucky and took her M.A. at Columbia U. She has been serving as student director in St. Mary’s Episcopal church for the last three years. They are leaving almost at once for Berkley, where Alfred, who is studying for the Episcopal ministry, will take work at the Church Divinity School. Alfred has been a hard worker on the Entertainment Committee and we shall miss him very much. We hope that he and Mrs. Tyson will be very happy in their new home.
